This Terms Theme
'THE DAY IN THE LIFE OF A PALEONTOLOGIST'
The theme for the Autumn term is 'A Day in the Life of a Paleontologist'. This will give us plenty of opportunities to learn collaboratively across classes and year groups. We will begin our learning by asking the children what they are curious to learn about. We will be learning about different dinosaurs, making fossils and exploring materials.

Tuesday 18th September - Dinosaur Day!
Today we've had a really exciting morning - Chris came in with some dinosaur fossils! We learnt about how long dinosaurs were on the Earth for, what happened to them, and learnt exciting facts about a range of different dinosaurs. Then we got to learn about what a fossil is, where it comes from and how it's made. We wore our Paleontologist badges and excavated a range of different fossils!
