Mini Monsters day!

Reception had a whole day of Mini Monsters to celebrate their Magical Monsters and Dangerous Dinosaurs topic! In the morning we had a visit from some little creatures. We learnt about reptiles and we got to hold and feel millipedes, bearded dragons and snakes! It was so interesting and we learnt lots of different facts about them!

In the afternoon, we were really lucky to have another special visit from an archaeologist. We learnt about how to dig and search carefully for historical artefacts. We learnt that we have to brush really carefully to find them as we don’t want to damage them. Then we had a go at finding our own artefacts. In our groups we chiseled and brushed to discover a dinosaur fossil! We worked really well as a team to use our special tools to chip away until we found the fossil in the middle.

We had such a brilliant day! Thank you to all our little creatures and visitors for coming!
