Early Years children have shown a keen interest in learning about Dinosaurs! Some of our children already know some dinosaur names and are dinosaur experts!

We have been engaging in a variety of activities to learn even more about dinosaurs. Outdoors, the children have been palaeontologists and digging for dinosaur fossils in our Dinosaur Dig area! Our challenge was to find the fossils and use our careful counting to count the fossils accurately. We have been learning about the textures of materials and have been exploring the small world dinosaurs using our senses. We have created texture dinosaurs with materials in the creative area and trying to use our new words such as, bumpy, soft, rough, shiny and smooth.
