Dino Discovery!

The Year 2 children got a shock this week when their English lessons were disturbed by an urgent video message from The Natural History Museum in London! One of the professors was adamant that some valuable dinosaur eggs were snatched from the museum by a large bird, and carried off into the sky! They tracked the birds to the Bournemouth area and he asked if we could keep an eye out for the missing eggs…

One of the children then spotted some curious footprints outside so we thought we best investigate. Incredibly, we found some eggs scattered amongst the bushes and mud. The children were very excited and curious, as you can imagine.

We left them in the classroom over night but came back in to scenes of utter carnage…

It appears one of the dinosaurs managed to hatch overnight, leaving a trail of destruction in their path. The children were most concerned and Mr Evans was not best pleased either. We quickly radioed down Mr Maguire but even he couldn’t find the elusive dinosaur.

Amongst the wreckage, we found shreds of paper, which when put together made a new text map for the children to learn. The title is ‘How to train a dinosaur.’ The children have worked out we are using this as a means of writing instructions and we have now started making our own actions to this text map. Good job Year 2, a great start to the new topic!
