“We’re going on a dinosaur hunt, we’re going to catch a big one.
What a beautiful day, we’re not scared.”
This week, to introduce Year One’s new English Reader, the children went on a dinosaur hunt. They had to swim through a river, squelch through a sticky swamp and chop down some overgrown vines before discovering the camouflaged dinosaurs hiding in the trees. Everyone had so much fun. Back in the classroom the pupils had a go at describing how they found the dinosaur and what it looked like. They produced some fantastic writing. The children also listened to their new story – Tyrannosaurus Drip by Julia Donaldson and David Roberts. They learnt that T-Rex’s are carnivores and eat meat whereas a duckbill likes to swim and eats plants. ROAR!
