To end our dinosaur topic, the children in Kingfishers Class showed their grown ups their dinosaur models, clay fossils and dinosaur moving pictures. They were very excited and were able to explain what they had been learning about in class this half term. Well done Kingfishers!
In DT the children have enjoyed creating ‘Moving Dinosaur Pictures’. The children used levers and hinges to make their pictures move. They thought about the tools and materials they needed and the skills they needed to use. The children also created a lovely background for the dinosaurs. Great work Kingfishers.
