We have been learning about dinosaurs. We have been learning facts from books, the Internet, video clips and each other! We have quite a few dinosaur experts in Panda Bear class! Once we had learnt some new facts we wrote our own dinosaur fact files...writing about where they lived, what they ate and their appearance. We learnt lots of new words like : herbivore, carnivore and omnivore.
We also had a go at making our own dinosaurs out of clay. We learnt the new skill of joining dinosaur body parts together using 'slip' (watered down clay) and how to make our dinosaurs stand up; this was especially challenging, we had to be very resilient! Once our dinosaurs were dry we painted them and varnished them with glue to make them shiny. We were very proud of our clay models.
