Thank you to all the families who came to join us at the Twilight at Riverdale Evening. It was such a great night had by all, the highlight from most of us was definitely Mr Pike's Magic Show!
Here are just a few photos of us from the evening
Dinosaur Construction & Role Play of Dinosaur Behaviour
Observation of Dinosaur Body Parts to Construct Accurately
Rin and Meleane constructed dinosaurs and role played dinosaur behaviour. Lots of oral language, negotiation and cooperation practiced while they explored this behaviour.
Notice Rin has researched that dinosaurs have tails and she explained that the long neck was because it is a plant eater so needs a long neck to reach the leaves on the tree.
Cooperating, Sharing, Taking Turns & Sharing Excitiment of Discovery
Questioning & Research
So many social skills being practiced with their peers. It was fabulous to hear the oral language being shared with awe and wonder at their shared descoveries about dinosaurs. Maia is hypothesising about what killed all the dinosaurs so this picture caught her eye and produced lots of discussion around what that ball of 'lava' was, where it came from and how it might have killed all the dinaosuars in the world. Such impressive social, emotional and thinking skills displayed by these clever children.
One of the children's questions was if there were any dinosuars that lived in the sea. Ryan researched the question using books and found that there was. He looked carefully at the detail and drew it for the class. Thanks for your research and observational skills to help teach the class something new Ryan. We appreciate your persistence and wanting to help us.
