Our trip to the Natural History Museum was wonderful!
The sights we saw were unforgettable!
On Tuesday 4th February 2014, Year 5 travelled down to London by coach, parents waved us off by the school gates and the atmosphere on the coach was electric. We couldn’t wait to arrive! Have a look at our pictures to see what we got up to on our journey!
The end of our day and follow up work.
On Tuesday 4th February, my class and I had fun investigating the Natural History Museum in London. We went to find out information about our new topic ‘Dinosaurs’ this term.
In the museum, I was delighted to see all the enchanting things it contains. One of
the best discoveries I made was how it felt to be in the middle of an earthquake. The room was shaking; my class mates and I found it hilarious. There was also a humongous T-Rex that took over the whole room, I felt scared but excited, it’s a good job it
I would recommend a trip to the Natural History Museum because there is so much to learn and explore. Each step you take around the museum there is a new discovery to be made!

On arrival to the museum, I felt astounded when I saw before my eyes a gigantic Diplodocus dinosaur skeleton. I thought it was incredibly interesting to see a real life dinosaur skeleton and it made me understand how many huge dinosaurs
used to be before they became extinct.
Once Year 5 devoured lunch, we then became dinosaur scientists; it felt like we were archaeologists because we had resources like a clipboard, booklets and a
dino-scientist lab coat.
All in all I enjoyed the whole day and I would definitely recommend and that all
adults and children should visit The Natural History Museum.

For Year 5’s new topic on Dinosaurs, we went to The Natural History Museum to be dino-scientists. We learned all about the dinosaurs and what they are called.
On Tuesday 4th February 2014, Year 5 left for London at 8:30 approximately. It took us two hours to get to London and the whole way I felt incredibly excited. As soon as I got to London, I felt excited about all the facts that I was about to learn. I knew they were going to stay in my brain all term!
The best thing about the trip was when we saw the life size humongous dinosaur that moved and growled. I thought it was wonderful, it inspired me to think about how it was made and about all the time and effort it would take to make it. I can’t
wait to make our own dinosaur fossils when we get back to school.
I would recommend this trip to everyone because it is a fantastic learning curve
for teachers, pupils, children and adults. I would love to go back and discover
even more than I did the first time!
