Trip to Shrewsbury Museum – Dragonfly Class

Today Dragonfly Class went to Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery to find out more about Charles Darwin.  In the morning, we went on a walk around Shrewsbury town centre to look at significant places in his life including the Quarry, St Chads Church and his old school which is now Shrewsbury Library.  In the afternoon, we looked around the museum and discovered more about his theory of evolution.  Finally, we used quills and ink to do some observational drawing of some of the specimens from the museum.  We had a great day and many of the children were keen to return to the museum to see all of the other exhibits that we didn’t have time to fit in.  The museum is free to visit and a fascinating place to find out more about Shropshire’s rich history.
