We will be publishing what we are learning during each term throughout the year. Watch this space to see what is happening in Term 1 in and out of the classroom and for useful information for Ash and Silver Birch classes.
Year 3 Wowed by Natural History museum visit
Year 3 have definitely had a WOW start to their Dinosaur unit with a fun and engaging visit to The Natural History Museum in Oxford.
Knowledgeable staff gave an exciting fossil workshop with interesting facts about a range of dinosaurs, brought to life with a range of amazing fossils. Part of a huge Tyrannosaurus Rex’s jaw gave the children the opportunity to look for clues and ask questions in order to find out key facts about these fascinating creatures. Fossilised dinosaur poo with clear fish scales showed us what they ate.
The remainder of the visit involved the children exploring the wonderful exhibits and seeing lots of different skeletons from ancient dinosaurs to many creatures still alive today.
Well done to Year 3 for being so engaged and enthusiastic throughout.
