The Dinosaurs are coming!

The Dinosaurs are coming!

P2 have been measuring dinosaurs

This morning P2 took advantage of a break in the wet and windy weather and headed out onto the games’ field to investigate the length of some of the world’s longest and shortest dinosaurs with our metre sticks.  

Accuracy was extremely important if we were to compare each dinosaur to another and so, in our groups, we meticulously measured every metre using a system of cones. We were amazed at how some of the shortest dinosaurs like the 2m velociraptor could have lived next to some of the longest like the 35m Argentinosaurus.  

Mrs Quayle and Mrs Spencer couldn’t even imagine a creature that was so long so we thought we’d see how the P2’s would measure up! Arms outstretched and standing parallel to the length of the Argentinosaurus, the P2-saurus managed to equal the length of this enormous dinosaur with the help of Miss Baird, and by going round twice!  

Take a look at our measuring skills, and I think it's safe to say we’re glad these gigantic creatures don’t roam the Earth today!
