Visiting Great North Museum

To bring our learning to life, we visited the Great North Museum last week. We began by  taking part in a journey through the universe, learning fascinating facts about the different planets. We then spent some time exploring the Ancient Egyptian Gallery and really enjoyed taking part in the activities in the artefacts box.. We then took part in a workshop where we explored the enquiry questions: What does the moon have to do with life on Earth?
This was a great way to bring our recent work on the Egyptians to an end whilst also launching our new Science unit: Earth & Beyond.
