We are palaeontologists!

Today we learnt about palaeontology and fossils. We did a dinosaur dig to find the skeleton pieces before sticking them together again. We also finished our dinosaur habitat and read lots of interesting facts. Our favourite activity was making our own fossils with plaster of paris and clay.

Farm Visit

We all had a great day at the farm yesterday. We did lots of activities linked to our topic of dinosaurs! We went on a dinosaur hunt, made dinosaur houses, went pond dipping, made dinosaur footprints from clay, dug for bones and finally we all had a great afternoon getting very mucky in the play wood!

Dinosaur Habitats

Today we looked at different environments dinosaurs would have lived in. We decided on our favourites and are in the process of creating a dinosaur habitat with a huge volcano! We also drew habitats with chalk and used the big construction blocks to build different types of homes.

Dinosaur Discovery

We spent yesterday making everything we needed for our dinosaur den! We painted dinosaurs, eggs, a palm tree and volcanoes. After we went home Mrs Daniels and Mrs Capaldi made it all for us to play in today :-) We took Baby Bitey in with us to meet all her dinosaur friends.  We will use our den for looking at fossils and dinosaur facts, reading stories and doing dinosaur digs, as well as playing with our toy dinosaurs.
