Spring 1: 2019
We have had a really fun time this term exploring our topic of 'Dinosaurs'.
Have a look below to see the sorts of things we have covered.
In Literacy this term we have been learning how to write story maps to show what has happened in a story. We began by reading 'The Hungry Caterpillar'and thinking about what he got up to. Then we discovered an egg in our outside area and tried to find out what it belonged to. After some research, we discovered that it must have been laid by a dinosaur and that we needed to put it in water to hatch.
The egg hatched out to be a dinosaur....a very NOSEY dinosaur who had fun exploring our school on a daily basis! We used our skills from 'The Hungry Caterpillar' to write another story map showing where he had been.
We have had 5 sessions this term with Adam from 'Move More' where the children have had the chance to develop their gross motor skills and balance! It's been great fun and the children can't wait to continue this after half term.
Parents were invited to come along to a ‘Reading Workshop’ session in February where they could learn how the children develop their reading skills and things they could do to help their child at home.
Please find the PowerPoint and 'ideas' letter below - as well as the tricky words list for this term.
