On Thursday 2nd November, Year 3 were fortunate to have a special visitor come to our school to help us learn about our topic “Footprints from the Past”. The students were taken to the new theatre complex in our newest building to experience the thrill of hearing an expert in his field speak about his profession. Paleontologist Segesdi Martin fielded questions that the students in Year 3 posed about dinosaurs, their appearance, behaviour, diet and habitat. He was very knowledgeable and was able to answer most of Year 3’s tricky questions. Mr Segesdi also brought in many artefacts for the students to handle and see up-close, including a real Hungarosaurus bone from around 80 million years ago and a 70 million year old coprolite, otherwise known as dinosaur droppings!
Year 3 have been working feverishly on all manner of dinosaur-related learning for several weeks now. Many students have submitted personal interest projects on dinosaurs that they find particularly fascinating. Their report-writing skills have been put to the test with students producing beautifully structured and informative pieces about all manner of dinosaurs. Year 3 also visited the Natural History Museum of Hungary on Thursday to reinforce their learning on “Footprints from the Past.”
