The dinosaurs are coming!!

Date: 3rd May 2016 @ 8:39pm

This half term Foundation Stage are learning about dinosaurs. We began our topic by finding out what we already knew about dinosaurs and the children could name quite a few. There was a dinosaur trail whereby the children had to count how many of each dinosaur they saw around the outdoor area and record it on the blackboard. In our soiled area the children excavated dinosaur bones and used toothbrushes to clean them. We had a go at creating our own fossils by printing dinosaur footprints in clay. Huge dinosaur footprints appeared on the floor too and the children had to estimate how many of their footprints would fill a dinosaur one.We also made our own volcano and with great delight watched it erupt (we did discuss how we wouldn't be so excited if this was in fact a real volcano!)

Now I know why Grace was telling me all about dinosaurs and volcano's.

Looks great fun. I might try the volcano trick myself.

Hi Rivington Primary Reception class! We have enjoyed looking at your learning all about dinosaurs. Ava said 'your work looks nice'. Poppy enjoyed watching your video of the volcano erupting and Bennie said he liked it when the volcano exploded! Curtis said finding the dinosaur fossils looked good and he liked that you used a toothbrush to clean them. We hope you enjoy learning lots more about dinosaurs and we are excited to see what else you have been doing! Thank you for showing us your learning.
