Y5 - Natural History and Science Museum


Year 5 had a wonderful time on Tuesday 6th February on their trip to not one, but TWO of London’s best museums, the Science Museum and the Natural History Museum.

Our first stop was the Natural History Museum museum. We first embarked on a journey to the centre of the Earth! We were able to use our knowledge from our geography lessons to correctly identify the different layers that make up our Earth’s structure before learning about what happens during an Earthquake! We even took a trip through the Earthquake simulator to experience the ground moving beneath our feet (don’t worry, we held on tight!).

After a quick pit stop for lunch, we were off again to the Science Museum. We explored the wonders of space ahead of our new science unit next half term and learnt more about America’s race to put a human on the Moon. We then explored the key events of creating modern machinery, visiting the James Watt section of the museum to get up close to one of the first steam trains ever built!
