Deadly Dinosaurs!

Posted by mrssshaw on Wednesday Apr 5, 2017 Under Uncategorized

Thank you for all the wonderful 3D dinosaurs that you have made. They are all brilliant! All so different and very creative!

We have all really enjoyed this half term’s topic on Dinosaurs. Learning about the timeline with the different periods: Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous was so fact filled. We discovered that the world looked very different from now and how it changed through each period of time. The children were amazed to learn that not all the dinosaurs lived at the same time and that for example a Stegosaurus would never have been eaten by a Tyrannosaurus Rex!

Herbivores, Omnivores, Carnivores we learned all about what these were and what features the dinosaurs had as a result of this. We loved being Paleontologists and learning about how fossils are formed and what they tell us. The story of Mary Anning the little girl who found an important prehistoric creature fossil … an Ichthyosaurus was exciting too.

I think this topic  has really captured the attention and imagination of the whole class…
