Today in the morning we went to Oxford and using park and ride we caught a bus to Pitt Rivers Museum. Here we went with a lady who gave us some activities to do. She taught us to think about the things we were seeing and imagine who the items belonged to and what the person was like. We were allowed to explore the museum and then we went outside in the sun and had lunch on the grass.
After lunch we went back into the museum into the Natural History Museum, and met a man called Chris who loves bugs. He talked about how bugs keep us alive because without them we would be swimming in dead animals and animal poo. He showed us two giant millipede’s, some hissing cockroaches and a tarantula and we held them if we wanted to. He drew on his board an insect and all its body parts. Then we had worksheets to do about insects and bugs so we explored the museum to find the answers. After that we had to find an object to sketch and then we walked to the bus stop to get back to our minibuses and back to the hostel.
