Today we were so lucky to be palaeontologists! We got to explore dinosaur fossils using paintbrushes. We learnt lots of information about dinosaurs and their fossils, including how to dig for fossils. We saw lots of different exciting fossils including an Allosaurus skull, T-Rex teeth and claws, a tail spike of a Stegosaurus and a horn spike of a Triceratops.
This afternoon, we had Jack the baby Allosaurus and Sophie the T-Rex who is 7 years old – luckily they had eaten their lunch!! Sophie was very big for 7 years old! We also got to see a dinosaur footprint and dinosaur egg.
As part of Road Safety Awareness week, Nursery and Reception learnt about how to stay safe on the roads. We learnt to stop, look and listen, make sure we hold a grown ups hand when crossing the road and to look for the green man that tells us it’s safe to cross. We made a road outside and put all of our learning to practice.
The children had an amazing morning watching the ‘Mighty Zulu Nation’ theatre company all the way from South Africa!!!! All the children were fascinated and enjoyed joining in with clapping and cheering the dancers on.
We have been learning about real life heroes this week. We were very lucky to have a visit from our local PCSO and Constable Cub! We learnt all about stranger danger and what to do in an emergency. We learnt that the police have a very special job and have to make sure that everybody follows the rules.
In Nursery we have been learning about how superheroes stay fit and healthy. We have learnt that they eat lots of healthy foods and exercise a lot. We decided to make some power pizzas and included lots of healthy vegetables in our toppings. They were yummy!
