Year 2s track Early Man at Kenya's National Museum

8th March 2023

On Wednesday 8th March, Year 2 pupils and teachers had the opportunity to visit the Nairobi National Museum as part of their topic work on Early Man. The trip 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 Turkana boy in real life, as well as some aspects of Early Man's lifestyle!

Pupils were also excited to visit the 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, our pupils had an amazing day!
