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!
