Today was Dinosaur Park day and what a fun day it was. We got to climb, fact find, have a picnic, hold snails, dig for fossils and play with our friends. Some of us tried things we'd never done before and lots of us grew in confidence as the day went on. Well done to Rose and Oli for going down the wavy slide and to Lola, Atlas, Albie and Chris for being brave enough to try the drop slides. There were smiles all round.

We made some dinosaur silhouette pictures and put them on a colour wash background. We think they look very professional.

We worked in pairs and groups to design and build traps to catch a dinosaur. We listened to each other's ideas and used them in our designs. We chose our own resources from the shed and explained to the rest of the class how our traps worked.

Evie's mummy came into Squirrel Class and showed us a video of The Hare and the Tortoise. She talked to us about the writer and artist Brian Wildsmith and showed us his version of the story. She then showed us how to draw a snail without taking our pencils off the paper. We then drew our own nature pictures before adding our finger prints to the school's Go Go Hare. It is decorated in the style of Brian Wildsmith. We think it is great!

Thank you to all of the mummies and daddies who came to the early morning session on Tuesday. It was lovely to see the classroom so full.

Science Day was so much fun! We got to blow balloons up using vinegar and bicarbonate of soda, power boats with washing up liquid and make lava lamps out of oil and water (with the help of an alka seltzer). We also tested lots of objects to see if they would float or sink.

This week we have been paleontologists. Take a look at all of the fossil themed activities we have taken part in. Our favourite was making our own fossils.

In maths we have been measuring the length and height of dinosaurs using cubes.

On Thursday we received a letter from the Natural History Museum telling us that the egg had hatched and they’d taken what they thought was a pteradactyl back to London to look after it. In its place they left a toy dinosaur for us to look after. They told us that if we look after it well something magical will happen. We set straight to work making 'Plates' a den, finding him food, making him toys to play with and creating friends out of duplo.

On Tuesday we discovered a nest and large egg in our outdoor area. We had lots of ideas about what could be inside it – an eagle, dragon, pterodactyl and blackbird. We searched for the mother but couldn’t see any sign of her. We decided to protect the nest by writing signs to tell the other children not to touch it and to keep quiet. Mrs Newbery has never seen us so excited to write!
