Help! The dinosaurs are frozen, how can we get them out!

Yesterday Ash Class discovered a range of Dinosaurs that had been frozen in ice. We discussed how ice is formed and together came up with a plan to free the dinosaurs. The children came up with ideas of places where we could place the frozen dinosaurs and predicted what one would free the dinosaurs first. The children chose to leave one in the classroom, two were held by each child and one went under warm water. The warm water melted first! Mercedes wanted to smash the ice – we are going to do this next week to see if it’s even quicker! We will let you know!

The children knew that outside would take the longest because it is cold.

Dinosaur Fossils and Bones.

Ash Class had so much fun researching Dinosaur Bones and Fossils. They used ‘Kiddle’ a child friendly search tool to find images of Dinosaur Bones and Fossils. They then made their own Dinosaur Bones and Fossils out of salt dough. Each team carefully added the flour, salt and water and discussed language related to capacity. Each cup of ingredients needed to be full before adding it to the mixing bowl.

St Lawrence’s Church

Ash class enjoyed their visit to St. Lawrence’s church this morning. They explored the church looking for a skeleton in a wedding dress, a whale spouting water and Shrek’s cousin. They then sang songs and listened to a story. A huge thank you to the 9 Mummies, 2 Nannies / Grandmas, 2 Daddies and 1 little brother who joined us.
