Year 3's Trip to London!



We took the children in Year 3 to the Natural History Museum in London to consolidate our learning about rocks and fossils.  They had an amazing day exploring the Museum and were able to talk about the fossils and dinosaurs we saw in terms of what they had learnt in class: They knew that the fossils were found in sedimentary rock, and could explain how they had been formed over millions of years.  They were stunned by the size of some of the dinosaurs (large and small!) and loved the T-Rex.  The children were also really pleased to see the actual Icthyosaur found by Mary Anning in Lyme Regis – the most important fossil ever found at that time.  We had lots of shouts of “We know about her!”  It was a great experience!
