Cutting Edge at the Natural History Museum!

Last week Year 5 visited the Natural History Museum for a great workshop called ‘Cutting Edge’ – which was all about TEETH.

We got to handle, observe and compare a variety of real mammal skulls and predicted the animal’s diet.

We used our scientific knowledge to discuss how animal teeth are useful for different purposes – diet and defence.

We then explored the Human Biology gallery – learnt how hormones affect our bodies, how senses influence perception, how our memories function, and how the brain and other organs work together.

We saw giant blood cells, heard a baby in the womb and tested your memory skills and visual perception on the interactive activities.

We learnt so much and loved how interactive the trip was!
