Our Reception Palaeontologists

Posted on: 02 Feb 2015 by Weston Green School | Category: Early Years, Reception

As part of our topic on dinosaurs, Reception classes have been learning about palaeontology. The children have had great fun digging up fossils and attempting to identify a variety of dinosaur bones.


They have also been given a number of challenges.   One was to see if they could design and then construct a home for their baby dinosaur using wooden blocks of varying sizes and shapes. The other was to see how efficiently they could access various fossils in a brick of ice using chisels, salt and water of varying temperatures.

In maths children are beginning to use the vocabulary involved in adding and subtracting. They have been creating swamps out of play dough and using dinosaurs to help solve simple addition and subtraction sums, which they have begun to record.
