After a very intense meeting at the Natural History Museum on Friday, it was decided that in order to catch our escaped dinosaur, the army would have to be called in.
Together, they worked alongside the police, using top of the range security tracking devices and on the early hours of Sunday morning, the dinosaur was caught!
Unfortunately, the details of exactly how and where the dinosaur was caught are top secret; all the class have been told is that it was with the help of thermal imaging equipment and a helicopter. Where the dinosaur is now being kept, is also highly confidential.
Although the children had their own ideas about how and what happened, they still really wanted to know the truth and so they wrote their burning questions in a letter to the museum.
They are hoping to get some answers next week!
In the meantime, the children have been designing their own ‘Dinosaur Land’ on paper, in the sandpit and with various construction materials. The class decided that to keep the dinosaur healthy the land should have: lots of space for it to roam, a river to drink from and bathe in, plenty of trees, plants and wild animals to feed on, a cave to sleep in, a secure fence around it and CCTV to keep an eye on it from a distance.
Next week, we are once again following the children’s interests and will be focussing on the theme ‘Space’.
Enjoy the extended weekend,
The Reception Team
