Eton Natural History Museum

Thirty Year-5 students from The Marish School in Slough visited The Natural History Museum in Eton today. 

They spent two-and-a-half hours looking at the biggest and smallest organisms trying to get an idea of scale and proportion in biology.  With tape measures they followed a Scale Trail, the highlight of which was measuring a 4m long Royal Python skin and the height of a Snowy Owl, and also had a session looking down microscopes at their own cheek cells. 

The children should be commended on their enthusiasm and excellent behaviour!
