This week we have been:

Learning about the kinds of foods that dinosaurs eat. We know they eat meat and they eat veg. We read a story called ‘Tyrannosaurus drip’, we then made food on the play-dough table, we made our own food plates on the writing table and we learnt how to brush our teeth in the water tray using plastic teeth, toothbrushes and toothpaste.

In math’s this week we have been exploring big, medium and small food that we can feed the dinosaurs. We had meat and we had veg. We have also been making paper diplodocuses, the neck was not long enough so the children made the neck longer. We then measured them and looked at which one was the longest and which one it was the shortest.

This week was science week, we have had lots of fun exploring how to make rainbows. We read the story ‘Catching a rainbow’ and we really wanted to make our own. We painted our own rainbows, we used special pens on tissue and put it into water to make a rainbow grow. |We also used skittle sweets to make a rainbow and explored making a rainbow using torches on top of CDs. We also tried changing the colour of a white flower into a different colours using food colouring.

We have also learnt about spring time and made out and blossom tree for the display.

We celebrated clean Monday this week by flying kites outside together, we will be using lady lent to help us count down the weeks to Easter

We all had a great time on our trip to the dinosaur lakes. The children were able to spot the dinosaurs on the list and really enjoyed walking around with the class and sharing what we found. We all wore our wellies as it was a little bit muddy!

Next week we will be:

  • Starting our animal topic. We will be reading ‘There was an old lady who swallowed … ‘ and ‘The rainbow fish’. We will be focusing on farm animals.
  • Continuing our science learning on making rainbows and then exploring how to make waves.
  • Counting and comparing objects.
