Happiness at the heart of learning

Science Museum, London.

The Year Fours ventured to South Kensington for what would be their final outing as members of the Lower School. The children had a fantastic time at the Science Museum, absorbing all the exciting activities, displays and experiences around them. They immensely enjoyed a presentation about the science that lies between explosions, understanding the relationship between various elements, i.e. oxygen, fuel and heat. This tied in nicely with their recent topic: Volcanoes.


The children witnessed the history of electrical household appliances, such as the vacuum cleaner - marvelling at the fact the an early model was the size of a refrigerator! Many children observed VHS players for the first time, asking, "How big were the Sky HD+ boxes back then?" Year 4 had a fabulous time and many cannot wait to take their families back to the Science Museum over the summer to enjoy the new exhibitions.
