YOUNGSTERS learned all about the wonders of the human body at a museum.

Schoolchildren from Newtown Primary School were invited to learn about the human anatomy by laying out all the bones found in a skeleton.

They also learned about teeth by looking at super-sized models.

And dressed up as insects they learned about the bodies of other animals.

The event took place at the Search Centre in Gosport on Monday.

For the rest of the week the centre will be celebrating Roald Dahl’s birthday with events for schools and families.

Youngsters can hear the famous stories, dress up as the Big Friendly Giant, and meet small creatures like the ones in James and Giant Peach.

There will also be an opportunity to learn to draw like Quentin Blake, the illustrator of Roald Dahl’s books.

Families can visit for free on September 12 and September 13 between 4pm and 6pm.
