Year 2 children had the opportunity to visit the Nairobi National Museum as part of their topic work on Early Man. This started with a tour of the birds gallery where the pupils were able to see hundreds of birds found in Kenya, their eggs and nests. After that they visited the mammals gallery where they saw different mammals and reviewed their characteristics as studied in science last term. They later toured the Kenyan history gallery where they saw lots of things about Kenya's rich history and culture.
The culmination of this trip was a tour of the Early Man gallery where pupils were able to see in real life the Turkana boy and Early Man's lifestyle!
Pupils were also greatly excited to visit the Nairobi snake park where they saw different reptiles. The most fascinating being the snakes! They learnt a thing or two about their habitats, what they eat and how venomous they are.
Not only did they take home a lot of information, they had an amazing day!
