Palm Class – Dinosaur timeline 4.05.18
Palm class created their very own dinosaur timeline, whilst looking at the different dinosaur eras in time. We found out that the Stegosaurs was alive in the Jurassic period, around 150 million years ago and that the Ichthyosaurs lived during the Mesozoic era.
Palm class had a great afternoon making their very own Dinosaur Top Trump Cards! Then of course, they got to play against each other with their Top Trump cards. Some great work from Palm Class, well done! ?
Well, we finally got the paint out to start painting our terrific dinosaurs! All 30 of us, at the same time! We were feeling very brave!
We started off by painting a base colour all over our model, with some thicker brushes. After that, we began to add a second coat and some initial detail. Finally, we used some finer brushes to apply even greater detail and originality to our dinosaur creations.
We had to be extremely patient in between each coat of paint drying and being able to add the next layer of detail. Well done Palm Class, you showed great care and skill to complete your dinotastic dinosaurs!
Apple and Palm class spent a beautiful sunny day on Charmouth beach.
With plenty of resilience and resourcefulness, we managed to find some amazing fossils!
From ammonites to belemnites, we found them! Some of us were even lucky enough to discover gold… fool’s gold that is!
We had a brilliant day learning all about the Jurassic coast and how fossils help us to understand more about dinosaurs! A T-rexiffic thank you to all of our lovely parent helpers who joined us for the day.
