A Land Before Time

 On the first day of our ‘A Land Before Time’ topic we discovered video footage of enormous dinosaurs in our playground, so we went outside to investigate. We found some huge footprints on our nature trail but wondered, could dinosaurs have really come to Canford Heath Infant School? We decided to do some research about dinosaurs to try to find out more information. We learnt lots of interesting facts about the different dinosaurs from non-fiction books and the Internet, and the children completed some wonderful home learning too. We learnt that dinosaurs are now extinct but that palaeontologists can study them through their fossils. As our ‘Fab Finish’ we created our own binoculars and hats, put on our special jackets, gathered important tools and went on our ‘Dinosaur Dig’ adventure. The children’s imagination came to life as they travelled back through time to the land of the dinosaurs where they could explore different dinosaur bones and fossils!
