Autumn 2 in RKJ!


This half term, the children have chosen 'Dinosaurs' as our topic and a Doctors Surgery/ Baby Clinic as our role play area. 

We began our topic by reading the book 'How to Grow a Dinosaur' and planting our very own dinosaur seeds, just like in the story. When we returned to school the next morning the seeds had grown, there were footprints all over the classroom and a dinosaur egg in a nest! The children were so excited by the discovery and it prompted some brilliant discussions about what had happened, and what might be in the egg! It also provided lots of opportunities to develop our communication and language skills, imagination and creativity and encouraged independent writing (signs to protect the egg), reading (exploring non-fiction dinosaur books), drawing, painting and modelling.

As part of our dinosaur topic, we have also looked at fossils, describing features of different dinosaurs and thinking about similarities and differences between them.

The children have also really loved being doctors and nurses in our role play area and talking about their own experiences of going to a doctors surgery/ hospital. We have been learning about what doctors and nurses do and how they can help us, and we have even been lucky enough for two real doctors to come and visit us which was brilliant!
