Dinosaurs Inquiry 


museum2On 30 and 31 May, our Year 0-2 children had a fabulous fun filled day exploring the Auckland Museum as part of our Dinosaurs Inquiry Unit for this term. Each class had a very hands on interactive session with the wonderful museum educators exploring their fossil collections and the distinctions between some of the different dinosaurs.


A huge thank you to all the wonderful parents who supported the teachers and joined us on our trip.
