On Thursday 3rd, we went to the Shetland Museum to see a very very special thing; A TRICERATOP’S SKULL!
It all started when I woke up at 6.50; I found out that there was a power cut, so I got dressed in warm clothes and went to school at 7.40. We don’t usually go to school at 7.40, it’s just that we had to catch the half eight ferry. We picked up our water bottles and sat in the bus. Me, Honor and Bradley grabbed the back seats, we travelled down to the ferry where we meet Melissa, Leah and Neil. Melissa came and sat in the back with us.
We went on the small ferry that took 20 minutes to get to Toft, which is on the mainland. We went upstairs and sat on the chairs. The younger ones went into the play room while the rest sat down. When the boat arrived at the mainland we sat in the bus and travelled for an hour. Until we got to the Shetland Museum. We had a biscuit and a drink of water. . We went through the rotating doors where we saw the triceratops’s skull and a model of Allosaurus. Me and Mia carried in a box each into the Learning room, where we would be staying for two hours. We dropped our jackets in a box and had a drink of water; next we went to meet Steven our tour guide, who was showing us the triceratops. The triceratops was massive! We looked in a glass case which had all different types of fossils. Next Steven passed round a fossil and asked us what did we think it was? It was …….. dinosaurs poop but it had been fossilized! Then Steven told us to stretch out our arms and join hands to show how long the triceratops was…. it was an extraordinary 10 meters. Next we got a sheet with questions about the triceratops; one of the questions was “how long is the triceratops?” How long do you think it is? Afterwards we got to draw the triceratops’s skull, we drew it quite big so we could see it! Next we went back into the Learning Room and saw clay on the table. We got to make clay models of the skull, we got very messy hands! Then that was the end of the fantastic tour.
