On Wednesday we went to The Nelson Museum and went upstairs. We had to be as quiet as mice but the boys weren't that quiet. We sat down in front of a drumming robot that Da Vinci designed. Then we went and had a look at some pulleys and I learned that the more pulleys the easier it is to pull something up. My favourite bit was making the helicopter.  By Samara

We went to The Nelson Museum and we saw lots of Da Vinci's machines that he designed. In the museum there was a separate part with lots of models of human bodies because da Vinci loved to chop up dead people to help him know how things worked. We got to make mini helicopters. My favourite part of the trip was making the helicopters. By Paige.
