Dinosaur Day!

posted 4 May 2017, 12:44 by Sheila Bacon   [ updated 5 May 2017, 10:24 ]

At Hadleigh Country Park, Year 2 had a treasure hunt on the way through the fields, past the cows (and the cow pat!) to the woods where they did a range of dinosaur themed activities. They built nests and filled them with eggs, which the scavenger dinosaurs then stole from!  
They found pictures of dinosaurs and classified them into herbivore, carnivore, omnivore or pescivore, as well as making a 'mini dino world' and a huge picture of a dinosaur!
Following lunch, they did tree bark rubbings to represent the skin of dinosaurs and placed themselves end to end to show how tall/long dinosaurs were.  A diplodocus measured 28 metres so when Mrs Bolton's class were all laid down they could see just how big that was!  They also created a dinosaur's leg by finding things in the woods to make it.  They completed their day playing a 'yes/no' game to see how good they were at remembering some of the characteristics of dinosaurs!

Year 2 pupils have been learning all about The Great Fire of London! To bring the topic to an end, they held a special themed day!  Activities included embroidering initials onto handkerchiefs (to protect their noses and mouths during the fire!), singing London's Burning in a round, pottery and making herb bags!
Mr Shelley, a Plumberow parent who is also a Thatcher, gave a demonstration! (with some help!)

A full day of fun learning!
