The Year 2 class of Buckingham Prep enjoyed a fascinating day out at the Natural History Museum in Tring to appreciate all creatures great and small!
The boys delved into the prehistoric era to become detectives! They explored what the Earth was like around the age of the dinosaurs.
After the introduction to animals of the past they had the exciting opportunity to get hands on and investigate real fossils and the boys had to try to identify what they were. Some of these were quite tricky, there were even a few fossils from really old trees.
As they made their way through the museum, they were enthralled by the diversity of species our world has to offer – particularly the insects, of which more than 1 million species have been documented and studied by scientists.
