Year 3 have had a superb time exploring the Natural History Museum in South Kensington. After an excited coach ride up to London, the children explored the beautiful building and its many galleries. To link in with our Geography topic, we spent lots of time in the Earthquakes and Volcanoes gallery, where we braved the earthquake simulator and learned all about tectonic plate movement. We got hands on in the Restless Surface gallery and learned more about our Earth and how it changes over time. It was tallying time as we explored the many gemstones and natural materials on show in Earth’s Treasury – we were very sad not to be able to take home some of the diamonds!
Year 3 had a wonderful day and are excited to continue learning all about earthquakes, volcanoes and rocks.
