On Monday Year 3 travelled to the Natural History Museum in South Kensington to explore some of the exhibits on rocks, fossils, and coasts which can be found in the museum. In addition, we were able to explore other topics covered over the course of their time in school. We spent two hours exploring the amazing halls of this fascinating museum, it had lots of interactive activities for pupils to take part in, including the earthquake experience.
Recently in Geography, pupils completed a case study on the coastal town, Lyme Regis. In this case study pupils discovered that Lyme Regis is well known for fossil hunting. Pupils were amazed to make links to their learning about fossils, ammonites, and Mary Anning on this trip to the museum.
