On Friday 10th February 2017, year 4 went to Cardiff museum, we were learning about the human skeleton. A man took us to a room, when we went to the room it was full of all different bones, they were all different shapes and sizes. He showed us a skeleton and talked to us about all the names of the different types of bones, shoulder blade and the upper leg bone etc

I learnt that hippo’s are very dangerous, we then went to do some activities, the first one we did was to guess which skull is from which animal, then the next activity was guessing which skeleton is from which animal and the last activity was putting the skeleton together.

We felt the different types of jaw bones of animals and looked at a sharks tooth.

It was a very interesting trip.

On he 9th February year 4 went on a school trip with Miss Delgado. We went to Cardiff Museum where there was a man called Liam and he was our teacher for the day. He talked to us about the human body and how it works. He made us sit down and showed us a human skeleton that he had brought with him. The name of the skeleton was Mr. Jones. He told us about different things in our body and what makes up the skeleton.

Liam also bought a bug to show us. Liam put us into different groups and there were a lot of skeletons around us. There were skeletons of different animals and we had to match the name of the skeleton to each animal by using a slip of paper with different names written on it. Liam also gave us slips of paper, which described the things the animal can do.

Liam gave us a booklet with animal activities written on it and I wrote about the otter. I wrote that the Otter’s body is made in a way that it helps it crawl. After this we did a puzzle about making the human body and we had to label each part . This was quite hard but I was able to have a good go at this.At the end we had to look at a lions skull and I held it but it was very fragile and I had to be very careful. Then we said by to Liam and we went back to school on the buses.

Museum trip by Dan

On Friday 10th February 2017 I went on a trip to Cardiff museum with my class. I like going to the museum because although I go regularly with my family, I always learn something new.

This time our visit was to learn about animal bones. In the education room one area was about matching animal bones to their picture, I got most of these correct and saw one animal Skelton that I had never seen before. It was called the cassowary.

I learnt that a wolves skull is very similar to a dogs skull because a dog is a kind of wolf and I learned that the only bones inside a snakes body are the ribcage and the spine so that makes it flexible.

Then we had a little booklet and there were 3 things to do in the booklet  and there were 3 tables.


We split up in to groups i was in a group with the girls. The first thing to do was to build a skeleton and then name tag it. then we had to fill it in our little book lets. Then we went to the next thing. It was naming some animal’s craniums. We had to name  them it was very hard to name them the we had to draw a animal’s cranium. I learnt that a cat’s head was smaller than it looks and a wolf’s head looks different in shape  to it’s  shape of head.We went on to the last thing to do it was to name the animal’s  and then tell what they did. I learnt that not all of them like the water.


Then when we had finished that that we all sat down and talked a little more about the human and animal’s body. I all so learnt  that we human’s were bought up by  gorillas and monkeys. We got look around a little bit of the museum to do with the human body and some more things.

Trip to Cardiff museum by Jay

Today year4 went to Cardiff museum. At the museum we saw lots of things. Miss Delgado was the teacher. At the museum someone called Liam came. We followed Liam through thee museum to a special room. First Liam brought in a skeleton in called Mr Jones. I learnt that your ankle bone is called a tarsal. Liam asked what things the skeleton does.. The skeleton protects organs. The thoracic cage protects your heart and lungs. Your pelvis protects your digestive system. Your skull protects your brain. I learnt that your spine protects nerves. The skeleton supports. Without your skeleton you would be a blob of jelly.   Then Liam said that we were going to do activities. We got into groups. Our group went over to a table with some animal skeletons. One was a otter. One was a albatross. One was a wallaby. One was a cassowary. We had to label the ones that we think the animals do. We got a little booklet. We wrote are name and then turned to the back. There was some work. We had to match verbs with animals. We had to pick an animal on the table and write about what its skeleton does.. Then we had to write in what the bones in are body are called. Then we drew a skull. I drew an otter skull and a wolf skull. Then we moved on to the next activity. We had to make a skeleton (made of plastic). When we did that we had to label the bones. Then we moved on to the last activity. We had to guess what teeth belonged to which animal. Then we asked questions and went. We went to see the dinosaurs last and then we went back to school.
