Welcome back Reception and Happy New Year! We have started off the new year with the ever so popular topic of ‘Dinosaurs’. Lots of the children have already enjoyed bringing in some of their own books and toys from home to share with year. On Tuesday, following on from our discussion about dinosaur eggs, Dillon decided to bring some in!! Fortunately for us they were quail, hen and duck eggs!
We took this super opportunity to go with the children’s interests and we estimated how many hen’s eggs we would need to match the length of one diplodocus egg. Harvey correctly estimated 17! We then took one quail egg, hen egg and duck egg and talked about what would happen if we boiled them. This led onto our discussion of ‘irreversible changes’. We enjoyed looking at the eggs before and after they were boiled and how they had changed. Jared said “you can’t change it back to a runny egg”, and George commented “I liked looking at the different colours in the middle.”
