5M’s trip to Manchester Museum

Year 5 took a trip to Manchester Museum where we learnt how to become creative curators! We learnt about how museums group animals and we practised our curative skills – looking, connecting and discussing.
We enjoyed looking at some of the taxidermy animals up close, learning about how it is done and had a go at creating our own museum! Then we got to explore the museum. There was lots of interesting information in the vivarium. They had live poison dart frogs and plenty of information about our topic – The Rainforest!
Unfortunately we had to cut our trip short and got caught in the rain on the way back though, but despite the weather, we had the best day!
