Welcome back to a new year and a new term reception.


There is a lot of excitement about our new topic 'Dinosaurs' this week and it has been lovely to share with each other the fantastic creations made at home over the holiday from recyclable materials. A huge thank you for the time and effort that went into these, they have certainly made our classroom look like 'The land of the dinosaurs.'

We began our learning by reading our story 'Dear dinosaur' and got to know our characters Max and T.Rex. Whilst reading their letters to each other we got to find our some interesting facts about T. Rex's which we then recalled and wrote in our literacy sessions.

One of the facts we discovered was that T. rex was a meat eater and his best friend in the museum was a plant eater. Using our information books on dinosaurs to help us, we sorted out our class dinosaurs into carnivores and herbivores, making observations about some of the key features that some dinosaurs had to help them hunt for food.

In mathematics, we introduced tally charts as a way of recording each other's favourite dinosaurs. This was great fun and we extended this to see the different colour eyes of the class. We also looked at some completed tally charts and worked out which was the least popular and the most popular, making sure we used mathematical terms and explanations.

For our big art project, we created some fossil pictures of dinosaurs skeletons so they looked as if they had just been discovered in the earth. They look very realistic , who knew penne pasta made such great dinosaur bone structures?

Have a wonderful weekend
Mrs Taylor
