Anfield Infants Learn All About Dinosaurs and Fossils

Year 2 pupils at Anfield Infants learned all about fossils and dinosaurs with a visit to their school from Everything Dinosaur.   The three classes of Year 2 pupils are studying fossils and dinosaurs for the rest of the autumn term and the enthusiastic teaching team have lots of exciting activities planned.  The Everything Dinosaur team member, explained how fossils formed and helped the children conduct an experiment with celery stalks to prove that living things have holes and spaces and it these spaces that can get filled with minerals as part of the fossilisation process (permineralisation).

Over the day, the Everything Dinosaur team were able to see some of the amazing artwork around the school, inspired in part by previous visits of the Cheshire based company to the school.

 The children had thought of lots of questions to ask the dinosaur expert, these questions had been pinned up onto a large K-W-L chart that was on display in each of the Year 2 classrooms.

There were lots of experiments and activities and the children were thoroughly engaged, learning all about extinction, herbivores and carnivores and how the world has changed since the time of the dinosaurs.
