Year 4 Trip to the Science Museum

On the 29th February 2016 Year 4 went on a school trip to the science museum. We went by coach and all the people at the back played a really fun game. It took an hour to get there and an hour to get back.

When we got there we put our bags away and went into the museum. The first bit we went to was exploring space where we saw rockets and planets it was very fun.

We got there by coach and it took about an hour and a half. When we got there we put our bags down and had a look around in our groups. After we had a workshop where a man was talking about electricity and how he got named the Father of Electricity.

When we arrived I was really excited because I hadn’t been there for ages! As soon as we walked in I recognized the steam train I saw before. It was massive, so was the museum. We headed straight to the space area as we thought it would be interesting. I found out lots of facts about going in space e.g Astronauts eat food out of bags, and they wear nappies.

When we arrived we were very excited. We had 20 minutes so we looked in the space gallery and saw lots of different things. Then we went to a workshop about Michael who invented electricity using a magnet, copper and mercury. It was quite confusing but good!

We went to a workshop and learnt about Michael Faraday. We learnt that he was called the Father of Electricity. Then we went upstairs and I learnt about medicine. I tricked Jay into touching a pole and he got an electric shock, I was laughing so much!
