Year 1 become Palaeontologists

Year 1 at Hamstel Infant School and Nursey became palaeontologists for the day as they explored real life fossils! With the help of a real-life dinosaur expert from Education Group they uncovered real fossils using their fossil brushes and tools. They then used the evidence they found to identify the species of dinosaur and apply their knowledge and identify whether they were a carnivore or herbivore. The children loved this real life experience which helped to develop their scientific enquiry skills and develop their scientific vocabulary. Year 1 teacher Mr Sayer said “The children were fully engaged with the workshop. They were extremely excited to be palaeontologists. All the children listened carefully to the workshop leader and asked some very insightful and challenging questions.”
