Maidstone Museum Trip - 20.02.18


On a rainy Tuesday, Pine Class travelled to Maidstone Museum by train - it was very exciting! Once we arrived we explored the Museum, spending time in the Dinosaur exhibit and being very fascinated by the Egyptian Mummy - Ta Kush! We learnt about how fossils were made and one of the boys became a dinosaur!


Quick children, run! There's a dinosaur behind you!


After lunch we went to the classroom and made clay dinosaurs and fossils. We then came back to school. We had a great day!
