20.04.18 Dinosaurs

Welcome back to you all following our Easter Holiday, we hope you all had a lovely time. The children certainly seem to have enjoyed themselves when they shared their news with their peers during circle time.
 
This week saw the beginning of our theme 'Dinosaurs' and it has been great to see the children being enthusiastic about their learning and bringing in books from home related to our theme. We have explored different dinosaurs and learnt facts about each one. We were amazed to find a dinosaur egg in our classroom and have been writing about what type of dinosaur we think may be inside.
During maths we have been adding and subtracting two single digit numbers, ordering numbers and even exploring doubling and halving.
We explored fossils and made our own using the clay. We then went on to think about herbivores and carnivores and decided to grow our own cress.
We saw the arrival of our rather large T-Rex!!! The children think that the dinosaur came looking for the egg that was left in our classroom. The children demonstrated their British Values skills by thinking of names for the dinosaur and having a vote. The most popular name was 'Rex'. We then used our phonic skills to write labels to stick on the dinosaur.
 
We used the magnetic letters to make the words which were on the dinosaur shapes and were able to read them to our friends.
Reminders:
 
  • Please ensure that your child has a sun hat in school and has suncream applied before coming to school.
  • Please write in your child's yellow reading diary every evening when you listen to them read their  phonics, words and reading book.
