Virtual Dino Dig 

As part of our adventure activities this week we are exploring fossils. The amazing Natural History Museum has a great many resources to support this including lots of videos you can dip into or out of just to explore what a fossil looks like and what it is like to be on a dig. 

Please take your time to explore the link below and have a look at a real live dinosaur dig.

Fossils are the bones of dinosaurs that have been preserved or saved in the earth's rock and sand over time. 

After can you have a go at following the recipe for salt dough and making your very own fossils.


Literacy - matching rhyming words and creating a rhyming string

Yesterday we explored the poem about finding a little dinosaur. Today we are going to focus on creating a rhyming string. A rhyming string is several words that have the same ending sounds but a different onset. The easiest way to start to explore this is by drawing pictures of objects that rhyme in the first instance. There are some resources below but I know not everyone will have a printer therefore some examples inclue 'cat, bat, hat, mat - pen, hen, den - sock, frock, block', etc.. See if your child can say the object names and match the ones that sound the same. You can then try using the resources below to write a list or a string or rhyming words. please have fun with this activity, you can also use the egg rhyming and matching activity as a fun game to play. 


Can you learn and do the actions to the song below? Have fun!
