Dinosaurs!!

This half term we are so excited to be learning all about dinosaurs and what happened when they existed!! We found an egg on the field and we don't know what is inside it!? Do you have any ideas what it could be? 

We hope it's not a real life dinosaur otherwise we will be terrified!

 

We will be learning lots about Dinosaurs this term and exploring through play. We cannot wait!

This week we have started to learn about Dinosaurs. We have looked at detailed pictures of Dinosaurs and then picked our own colours and painted our own dinosaur. They look really good! We also made our own fossils using salt dough. We made our own salt dough then made an imprint onto the dough. We then let it set and we painted it when it had dried. You can come into our classroom and see them if you like.

We went outside and pretended to be dinosaurs. It was so much fun!! We stomped about and made loud noises. We then ran around chasing each other. We made big movements and small movements. Our favourite dinosaur was the t-rex, the scariest of them all.

Harry and the Bucketful of Dinosaurs

This week in Nursery we have been reading 'Harry and the Bucketful of Dinosaurs.' We have loved reading all about Harry and how much he loves his dinosaurs. We all had a favourite dinosaur. Make sure you ask us and we will be able to tell you. 

We had a really fun week and have learnt a lot about different dinosaurs. One of our favourite activities was trying to help the dinosaurs escape from the ice eggs. We used different things and experimented to see which was the most effective. Hot water melted the ice but the spoons helped to chip away the ice. We had lots of fun!

We also went outside and had to hunt for Harry's dinosaurs. They all escaped from his bucket and he needed help finding them. The cheeky dinosaurs had hidden all around our outside area on the climbing frame, in the sand pit and behind the trees! We found the and then counted how many we had found. We were then able to recognise the correct number from a selection in front of us. Our number recognition is getting really good. Harry then said thank you for helping him get his dinosaurs back safe!
We then did some non-fiction reading and found out lots of facts about dinosaurs and made our own dinosaur which we named after ourselves. To do this we dipped our hands into paint and printed it onto a piece of paper. We then added legs and a head and wrote our name, for example Johnosaurus! We laughed a lot making these. We also practised our throwing and counting skills. We threw a bean bag into different hoops which were positioned on the playground. Each hoop had a different dinosaur in them and they were each worth a different amount. We then had a go at counting them up. 
We have also had so much fun playing in our classroom. The dinosaur cave is amazing and we have pretended to be explorers taking photos of dinosaurs. The small world has a volcano in it and we have loved playing with our friends with the dinosaurs. We have also loved digging for bones and skeletons in the sand.
