Year 5 Skeleton Workshop
Year 5 enjoyed a fantastic workshop at the Oxford University Museum of Natural History as part of their science course. We learnt about different types of skeleton, ranging from the human endoskeleton, to hydrostatic skeletons in worms and molluscs. As part of the workshop we were treated to an amazing array of specimens from corals to beautifully coloured butterflies. When discussing exoskeletons we were lucky enough to see some Madagascar hissing cockroaches - and the braver ones among us even held them. The workshop finished with a self-guided trail through the main gallery of the museum where we marvelled at the skeletons of a huge range of animals, both present day and extinct.
