This term our EYFS topic (Rec & Nursery) was ‘The Land Before Time’. To enhance and enrich the children’s learning we held a Dinosaur Day on Thursday 7th February 2019, hosted by: Education Group.
The children started the day with an exciting workshop in which they learned about the role of a palaeontologist. They were given large sandboxes in which to locate and identify fossils from some of the most iconic dinosaurs of the past...Tyrannosaurus Rex, Stegosaurus, and Triceratops to name but a few.They also found out about when each dinosaur lived, where they came from, what they ate and much more.
In the afternoon, a T-Rex visited the children in Assembly. This was a life-like full body costume that was worked by a puppeteer... so real in fact, there were a few shocked faces!
