Our dino-rific half term!
This half term we have been learning all about dinosaurs! We started by reading the story ‘The dinosaur’s diary’ by Julia Donaldson. In this story, a dinosaur is searching for a suitable place to lay her eggs. Can you imagine our shock when we came back from lunch and our classroom had been wrecked and eggs had been laid in our reading area?
We started to investigate what had happened and after talking to members of staff and of course Mr Shelley, we discovered that the dinosaur from our story had visited St Luke’s and used our classroom as her nesting ground. We were very excited and we decided to learn more about the different types of dinosaur that existed. We started by looking at what the world was like when they were alive and then discovered that both carnivorous and herbivorous dinosaurs existed. We looked at their skeletons, their diets, their characteristics as well as the famous palaeontologist Mary Anning who discovered amazing fossils on England’s Jurassic Coast.
