We have loved learning all about dinosaurs in Pine class! We explored who Mary Anning was, and how her important discoveries taught scientists that dinosaurs existed long before humans ever lived. We created dinosaur eye inspired artwork using clay, and compared how dinosaurs were different to humans by looking at photographs of skeletons.
We even had a very 'egg-citing' day when some large footprints were left behind... along with an enormous egg! This created a good deal of discussion, as well as letters to Mr Carver explaining why we should or shouldn't keep a dinosaur as a pet! We measured how many of our shoes could fit inside a T-Rex's footprint, too!
We also discovered some 'coprolites' (fossilised poo!) and carefully dissected them using tools to find clues. This told us whether the animal which left it behind was a herbivore, a carnivore or an omnivore.
