Children and their families enjoyed a visit to the Natural History Museum this week. This followed an interest in animals that staff observed over time developing into an exploration of the flora and fauna of the North and South Poles. Children have used books, talk, the ipads and each other to explore their knowledge, discuss ideas and find out facts.
Staff accompanied families on the District Line to the Natural History Museum to have a final look at Dippy the Diplodocus before he goes on tour around the country whilst the museum is renovated. Children had opportunities to get hands on with bones and up close with the taxidermy on display as well as speak to curators.
We are lucky to have such gems on our doorstep and we and our families must make use of them.
