Yesterday year 2 had a fantastic time exploring the London Science Museum.
The day started by getting a coach from school. There was a lot of chat and excitement around what they would see and experience.
Once we had arrived we had time to explore the Pattern Pod area. There was a lot of fun had by all making and spotting patterns. Blue class child "I now know that patterns are all around us".
We then had free time to explore the rest of the museum. The children were able to make links with their learning by spotting information that related to our recent topic of 'Great Explorers'. We learnt knew information too about the moon landing and the first Atlantic flight.
The children spotted the plane 'Jason' flown by Amy Johnson and were extremely excited by this.
We had a talk by a volunteer at the museum about the first ever plane and the flight. The children were so engrossed by this talk and were able to ask interesting questions. We found out that it will be the 100th anniversary of the first flight as well as being the 100th anniversary of the first teddy bear flying over seas too.
It is safe to say the children (and adults) had great fun and learnt new information.
