Year 9 Explore The Natural History Museum

On Thursday, 18th October the Humanities Department took all of Year 9 to the world famous Natural History Museum at South Kensington, London. The visit was linked to their humanities curriculum and allowed the students to experience education outside of the classroom environment.

Milenah & Ragshidaa in Year 9 described their experience: ‘Although we were told what to expected we were blown away by all the exhibitions. We revisited topics we have studied in class in a more practical manner. There was one display were you could experience the actual effect of an earthquake, along with another display showing two victims in Pompeii after the Mount Vesuvius explosion. We even had the opportunity to touch a meteorite that is millions of years old. We had a great day out and learned so much.’
