A day of dinosaurs!

Year 1 had the most exciting day at the Natural History Museum!

We had to travel by coach, it was lots of fun.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When we arrived we went exploring around the dinosaur exhibition and saw fossils, skeletons and even a huge T-Rex that roared!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Next we ate our tasty lunch in the picnic area!

After lunch, we took part in a Stegosaurus workshop!

We built a Stegosaurus out of jigsaw puzzle pieces…

Then we had one last look around the dinosaurs!

We learnt so much about dinosaurs and really enjoyed our day.

Thank you to all of the parents who helped us have such a wonderful time!

A cracking half term!

Year 1 were very excited on the final day of half term to discover all of their eggs had hatched into baby dinosaurs!

We observed our dinosaur eggs over 3 days and noticed that the water was helping our dinosaurs to grow big and strong. Some of our eggs even made the colour of the water change!

We discussed why the colour of the water may have changed and how the egg was being dissolved in the water and how the dinosaurs absorbed the water to grow bigger!

We had lots of different types of dinosaur including Spinosaurus, Brachiosaurus and even a T-Rex!

We were very shocked and excited about all of the changes we saw!

Why do you think the colour of the water changed?

Dinosaur eggs have arrived in Year 1!

This afternoon Year 1 have been hatching some dinosaur eggs!

Over the past few days we have been making dinosaur nests with our junk modelling materials for a special surprise  and today we all got our own dinosaur egg to look after.

We put the egg in a cup with some water and then made predictions about what we thought might happen!

We are all very excited and will be keeping a close eye on our eggs over the next couple of days.
