Year 4s Trip to the Natural History Museum
Thursday 4th July 2013
The 4s visited the Natural History Museum in London on Monday 1 July.
The girls visited the Human Biology gallery, where they had the opportunity to listen to what a baby experiences in the womb, test out their memory, and learn all about cells and genetics. In addition the girls explored the dinosaur exhibition and saw the awesome Blue Whale model.
The girls also had a session run by the museum staff in the ‘Investigate Centre’. Using microscopes and other scientific tools the girls explored hundreds of stunning objects from the natural world, giving an insight into what the museum scientists do.
The girls then began their ‘Darwin Centre’ experience on the 7th floor of the building, which you can reach by glass lift. After admiring the breath taking views the group wound their way down the gently sloping curved walkways past incredible specimens and exciting activities. Through glass panes the girls could see world-leading scientists actually at work. After a visit to the fantastic shop the group met back at the museum’s grand entrance hall with the famous Diplodocus skeleton before heading home.
