A fandoodletastic day at the Roald Dahl Museum

 

Today, Year 3 visited the Roald Dahl Museum in Aylesbury to discover more about Roald Dahl and his amazing stories. The museum was full of exciting interactive displays such as Fantastic Mr Fox's tunnel and the BFG's huge all-hearing ear. They also participated in Mick TV's television show by being shrunk and patted by a huge teddy bear; even the teachers fell at his peril by being eaten by the enormous crocodile!

 

In the adjacent museum, the children examined exhibits linking with their study of prehistory as well as other historic finds from the area. Among them, they found metal arrow heads, fossils and even a woolly mammoth's tusk! 

 

All in all it was a splendifiocious day!

A roar-tastic rocks and fossils workshop

 

As part of our Science, we had an exciting workshop during Autumn 1 Term to round off our first topic. The children were able to wanderer through the many detailed dinosaurs that roamed the school hall while using their enquiry skills to search for answers to the many questions on their worksheets. 

 

In the afternoon, the children drew various fossils as well as meeting one of the first ladies to discover fossils many years ago...Mary Anning! She joined us to explain a little bit about her life and the strange things she found while strolling on her local beach.
