Pupils in Lower 1 have spent an exciting weekend in London, which included a sleepover at the Natural History Museum.
Alison Petit, Housemistress and Teacher of Lower 1 tells us more:
“Their first stop was the Science Museum. They spent a few hours exploring the galleries and trying out the many interactive exhibits thus furthering their knowledge and experience of the world of Science.
They then headed to the Natural History Museum where they were able to stalk the galleries as night descended and find T Rexes hidden in the shadows. The pupils also had the chance to explore a torchlit trail, get creative with a dinosaur t-shirt-making workshop and dig deeper with an educational science show presented by a Museum scientist.
Finally, Lower 1 set up camp in the Museum's spectacular Hintze Hall where they slept with a 25-metre real blue whale skeleton suspended from the ceiling.
After an amazing night, Lower 1 headed for home. This busy and fun-filled trip was an amazing experience for the children.”
Sofia (Form L1) also gives her thoughts on the trip:-
"I really enjoyed working together on the activities with my friends. There was so much to see!! One of my favourite bits was the robotic dinosaur that moved and ROARED and made me jump!! I have never been to a museum at night time, let alone slept under a blue whale! I think it was an amazing experience that I will never forget!"
