Papplewick  School, Year 4 boys visited the Natural History Museum, London, as part of a project on habitats and food chains. 

During the visit the boys explored the various zones of the museum. They learned the origins of myths of unicorns and mermaids and discussed how human interference has affected food chains. 

The boys were particularly excited by the Dinosaur and the Restless Earth Zones, developing their knowledge of how long the dinosaurs inhabited the Earth and the events that eventually led to their extinction. They also took part in an excellent "Adventure to the Deep" show, finding out about the teeming life in the different levels of the world’s oceans and how human expansion is causing problems with some of the world's most diverse and vulnerable ecosystems.
