We are really getting our 'teeth' into our Dinosaur topic this term. We often take our learning 'in the moment' here in Hedgehogs. When we heard that a Meglodon Shark tooth had been found on the beach at Bawdsey we just had to put our phonics lesson on pause to do some research. We found out facts such as, how long ago they lived and how big they were. The then took our learning that bit further and measured exactly how big they were outside, using a metre stick and ourselves! We were very surprised just how big they were! From measuring the shark we then drew the shark, it's teeth and even its food. You will be pleased to know hat phonics resumed shortly afterwards.
