This intriguing day was broken into three captivating workshops which would allow the pupils’ imaginations and creativity to run wild.
In true collaborative style, Mr Webb and Mr Hudspith supported the children to take on the roles of TV interviewers and expert palaeontologists. Students planned, wrote, acted and filmed their creations with some brilliant results.
Originality was the theme in Mrs Sutton and Miss Gill’s fossil formation workshops. The children pressed, carved and moulded fossil prints into their clay prints. The Plaster of Paris was carefully poured inside – we eagerly await the results, will new dinosaur fossils be discovered?
Miss Wakelin and Mr Foster hosted a ‘puzzling’ workshop as the children found connections between their knowledge of the human skeleton and a dinosaur one. They pieced together jigsaws and used techniques to give them a more prehistoric look.
Year 3 had an active and exciting day of learning alongside their peers. Here at BISS Puxi we strive to create opportunities to allow young minds to not only learn new skills and knowledge, but also to allow them to discover that learning can be fun too and it certainly was on Dinosaur Day!
