Children will learn the names of various different dinosaurs and learn what they ate and how they lived. What is a fossil and where might we find one? Explore the role of a palaeontologist.  Discuss the importance of looking after our world and caring for the environment. What does the term ‘extinct’ mean? How can we help endangered species?


WOW! Reception worked very hard on their homework. Well done everyone who brought in their work. The children had a walk around our dinosaur museum and children talked about their homework to their friends.
