Dangerous Dinosaurs

This term the children have enjoyed learning all about dinosaurs. To start the topic off the children all wrote down one question they wanted answering about dinosaurs. This was then worked into the planning and children were given the opportunity to answer their questions as we moved through our learning.  Children have explored, when dinosaurs lived, what types of dinosaurs they were and we watched our own dinosaurs hatch.

The dinosaurs have brought much debate and excitement into the classrooms. The children were very eager to find out what dinosaur was in their egg. Each day the children documented the changes of the egg in detail and made predictions. The children were very excited when they saw the first crack in their eggs.
