Earth’s trip to the Great North Museum

On Wednesday, Earth went to the Great North Museum in Newcastle.


We enjoyed exploring the Ancient Egyptian section, looking at artefacts and real life Mummies! We also enjoyed recreating an Ancient Egyptian’s ‘Journey to the Afterlife’. 

In the afternoon, we enjoyed learning about Fossils, particularly about the dinosaurs! We were gobsmacked at how big the T-Rex fossil was and enjoyed listening to lots of facts about how the fossil was discovered. We also had a look at the rocks and minerals section, which included lots of rocks from around the world!
