STUDENTS from a school in Ascot have visited the Natural History Museum as part of a school project.

Year 4 boys from the Papplewick school vistited the museum in London as part of their project on habitats and food chains.

During the visit the boys explored the various zones of the museum and learned the origins of myths of unicorns and mermaids and how human interference has affected food chains.

The boys were particularly excited by the Dinosaur and the Restless Earth Zones, developing their knowledge of how long the dinosaurs inhabited the Earth and the events that eventually led to their extinction.

They also took part in an 'Adventure to the Deep' show, where they learnt about the worlds oceans.
