Yesterday morning Silver class became palaeontologists and we had so much fun digging for fossils! The children had an excavation site in class that they couldn't enter without safety gear - they were very good at remembering to put it back on if they came out of the site.
There was a lot of team work going on, which was lovely to watch, and we are very pleased at how much the children shared all of equipment, how they took turns and helped each other to dig for preserved dinosaurs or bones. They were even able to remember some of the long and hard key words better than us adults! Well done Silver Class!
