Nursery - Fossil finding
We have been learning about fossils this week. We talked about how dinosaurs lived a long time ago and are now extinct. The children learned how fossils are made by bones that have been pressed in between rock, sand or soil. We know that fossils are used to tell us facts about dinosaurs. The children found fossils for a T-Rex, Pterodactyl, Diplodocus and a Stegosaurus. We used non-fiction books and the internet to find out information about them. The children then made their own fossils by making their own salt dough and pressing a skeleton of a dinosaur into it.
In RFW we have learnt about Pancake Day. We learnt that it is a Christian celebration and can also be called Shrove Tuesday. We found out that people eat pancakes so that they can use up flour, eggs and milk before Lent begins. We then tasted some pancakes. They were yummy!!
For homework this week RLS have been speaking to their family about the toys they used to play with when they were younger. They were talking about the difference between their toys and their grown ups toys.
