Trip to the Oxford University natural History Museum 2016

Year 6 enjoyed a fantastic trip the Oxford University Natural History Museum.  We were met by Chris who talked to us all about the Theory of Evolution, where we were able to look at how animals (and plant life) had evolved/adapted to the changing environment, over time.  We discussed the natural selection and survival of the 'fittest' process.  We discussed the British founding fathers of these theories: Charles Darwin and Alfred Wallace.  It was a fantastic introduction.  

Most of all Year 6 learnt that like Charles and Alfred, both who followed their passion, that if we do the same, who knows what we too will discover.  Pupils then had a chance to walk around the Natural History Museum.

After lunch, we took a tour around the mesmerising Pitt Rivers museum where artefcats from all over the world, different cultures and religions, gather in this one place. Absolutely brilliant!
