Class 5 Trips

National Media Museum Bradford

In a short and informative talk, the children heard about the history and science behind animation, and how optical toys were developed to bring images to life. They explored the earliest forms of animation, including thaumatropes and flick books, before marvelling at our Lego Zoetrope. In the workshop they also got to make their own thaumatrope to take back to school.

Watched an amazing Walking with Dinosaurs 3D film

Travel alongside hundreds of plant-eating dinosaurs facing the challenges of a changing world. From the moment they hatch these prehistoric giants face natural disasters and ferocious predators while also playing, hunting, feeding, and undertaking epic migrations.

The dinosaur bodies and movements are based on fossil evidence and their behaviour is derived from both palaeontology and detailed studies of modern animals.

Yorkshire Coal Mining Museum

The children got kitted out with hard hat and battery lamp then stepped into the cage to descend 140m underground to discover the harsh realities of coal mining through the centuries.

Led by lively former-miner guides, took you on a journey through time to discover the different ages of mining, from Victorian times where women and children worked underground alongside men, through to pit ponies and modern machinery.  We heard all about working life and experiences in the mines. What’s more, the displays on this underground tour were recently updated as part of the Making Sense of Mining development project!

Before the children went underground, they strode out over the Lamp Room’s new glass-topped Furnace Shaft and peered down 140m – right to the bottom of the mine! Visitors going below ground can also gaze from the bottom up as they start their underground experience.
