Happy Half Term Reception

My goodness reception, how this term has flown by !

We have had a fantastic term learning all about dinosaurs and so it was lovely to finish off our learning with a visit from Starlab and a dinosaur workshop.

Some of our discussions in class this term about why the dinosaurs are no longer alive have centered around the two viewpoints that it could have been a volcano or a meteorite from space. When we asked Mr Tibbetts what his scientist view was, he explained that the evidence around fossils supports both views and that we can never really know.

During our time in Starlab, we loved looking at the different planets in our solar system. We learnt that the sun is not a planet but a star made of different gases. This was a surprise to some of us! We especially liked looking at all the stars when they were joined up like a dot to dot so we could see Orion the Hunter, Venus and constellations like the Gemini twins. In the words of Jacob "This is the best thing ever."

In our dinosaur workshop we explored where the Jurassic coast is in Great Britain and a lady called Mary Anning who sold fossils she found along the shore line. We searched for dinosaur eggs in the garden and had to wait patiently for the ice to melt so we could discover which dinosaur baby we had found. For our fossil hunt we excavated in sand to find different dinosaur bones and pieced them together to work out which type of dinosaur the bones belonged to.

We even braved the chilly weather to measure out the different dinosaurs on the playground which gave us a real sense of their size. Our longest dinosaur was 132 meters, sadly that was longer than our playground, so we had to go round the netball post and back up the playground!

In PE this week we have added roll to our gymnastic sequences. we practiced teddy bear rolls and egg rolls! And in music this week we continued to learn about rhythm, using the glockenspiels to play D along with 'Twinkle twinkle ' and ' Rock the baby.'

Enjoy the rest everyone.
