We visited the Natural History Museum on the 28th February 2018.
We have been learning and reading about dinosaurs so it made sense to go and see some. We were all very excited as we entered the dinosaur exhibit. Everywhere you looked there were dinosaur bones hanging or towering over us. We were not scared as it was obvious we had more muscles than they did, they had no skin and were all bones. There were big, small, familiar and unusual looking dinosaurs.
As we trekked through the maze of skeletal dinosaurs, we roared, chatted and sang, until we came to a gigantic, roaring, menacing Tyrannosaurus Rex. It was dark, he was loud, we were scared, he stood tall and proud. Some of us brave ones were not so brave after all,
We made a quick escape and continued on our journey to learn about where and how they lived.
Although we had been scared we were brave enough to touch a T-Rex’s mouth, restoring a little bit of our confidence. We were also brave enough to stroke the T-Rex’s teeth when they were no longer in his mouth of course! After lunch, we went to the Creepy Crawly exhibition where we saw big scorpions, butterflies and all sorts of Creepy Crawlies. We were not too keen on the spiders, or the house and cat that were infested with fleas. Hey! Stop itching, they were only plastic. Afterwards, we went through to the Mammals exhibition where we saw all types of animals ranging from elephants and giraffes and mammals with a tail, kangaroos, wolves and a gigantic whale. It was almost time to head back to the nursery, but not before one last peek at the dinosaurs. Led by Cassius and his amazing map reading skills we were drawn back to the T- Rex. At first, some of us were a little hesitant but after a few minutes, we were close enough to feel his breath. We had such a great time at the museum. We pressed every button available and opened every flap, we twisted every knob, and we’ll definitely come back soon (perhaps with mum and dad). We enjoyed every last moment, who said museums were boring, the minibus was the only place that you could catch us snoring.
