Dinosaur Adventures in Reception

Home » News » Dinosaur Adventures in Reception

Our week has been full of Dinosaur Adventures! Footprints appeared outside our classroom and we dressed up as dinosaur detectives to find out what had happened. Our observations led us to believe that they were from the Triceratops so off we went to find out where he went. After exploring outside, we saw some clues that led us to the Science area, and Isobel was very excited to find him standing next to a human skull bone. We decided that he was helping us learn more about human skeletons. It was great to see your excitement to write posters when we returned to class......'Help!' 'Watch Out!' Mrs Taylor's learning team took a dinosaur on their own adventure around school. When they got back they wrote a story all about where they had been. All your sentences looked fantastic, and we were very proud to award head teacher's awards for your new steps in learning.

After finding out about your favourite dinosaurs last week, we have learnt more about recording your answers. Thank you for creating pictograms as your home school link, in class we have been busy working out how to use tally marks. Creating them outside was great fun. We tried hard to remember to 'close the gate' when we got to a set of 5. One of our enhanced provision learning activities enabled us to create dot-to-dot dinosaurs and do this, we counted in steps of 2.

We have started our daily Super Sentences competition — writing sentences is one of our next steps so after singing our sentence song 'A sentence makes much sense, it starts with a capital letter, ends with a full stop, and don't forget your finger spaces,' we set off on entering our competition. After 3 days of the competition we saw a development in letter formation, finger spaces and writing a little bit more each day. We are excited to enter our competition each morning and look out for our competition winners, you may see them walking around with a blue rosette, on their jumper or cardigan.

Tom and the Island of Dinosaurs is a story that has helped us to extend our dance skills in PE this week. As a class we have joined together to create movements linked to the moving ocean and a smoking volcano which have been combined with our dinosaur dance movements. I am looking forward to developing our dance next week.

I have received some great news about out Operation Christmas Child class shoe box over the weekend... I wonder where it went?

See you on Monday,
Mrs Pointon
