Dinosaurs at Blakedown!
On Monday 16th May the children from all classes had an opportunity to take part in a workshop which made our History topic 'Time Travel' come to life. Each class had a session which covered aspects of the curriculum for the different age groups across school but with the main focus being on fossils and what they can tell us about dinosaurs, with the children pretending to be palaeontologists. At the end of the day there was an assembly where the children were visited by a baby T-Rex and Millie the adult T-Rex who just happened to be wandering around our school grounds!
Further activities have been planned to link to this experience via cross-curricular work in Literacy, Maths, Science and Art & Design.
See us in The Shuttle.
