Dinosaur Planet

Stomp, crash, RRRAGH!

Watch out everyone – the dinosaurs are on the prowl!

They’re rampaging across the dusty earth, swishing their enormous tails and baring their fearsome teeth.

 

Let’s explore the Dinosaur Planet!

Imagine you’re a palaeontologist (that’s a scientist who studies bones and fossils). Dig deep and discover dazzling dinosaur facts. Create a dinosaur museum and invite visitors to see your awesome dinosaur artefacts. Which is your favourite dinosaur? The Tyrannosaurus, the Brachiosaurus or the Micropachycephalosaurus? Doyouthinkhesawus? Yes he did… RUN!

A dinosaur discovery... On Friday, Year 1 discovered a huge egg in the school grounds, which we think might have come from a dinosaur. Miss Woodward called a dinosaur expert who told us how to best look after the egg in our classroom, we can't wait to see what happens next!

Making our own fossils... 

To begin our learning about fossils and the discoveries of Mary Anning, we had an Art lesson in which we made our own fossils from salt-dough. We had to squash, press, knead and stretch the dough before pressing different objects into the dough to create our fossils. 

Below are some pictures of us making them.
