Spring 2: Dinosaur Planet


Dinosaur Planet


Stomp, crash, RRRAGH! Watch out everyone - the dinosaurs are on the prowl!



They're rampaging across the dusty earth, swishing their enormous tails and baring their fearsome teeth...



Let's explore the Dinosaur Planet!

Dinosaur Fossils


Today we made dinosaur fossils using clay and mini dinosaurs. We had to manipulate the clay into a 'fossil' shape and then push little dinosaurs into the clay to leave an imprint behind!

Forest School


It was such a beautiful, sunny morning today when we went outside for Forest School. We had so much fun on the rope swing, making chocolate cake and building dens, fires and boats. When we got back to class we couldn't tell if there was more mud at Forest School or in our lovely classroom!

Forest School


It was a wet and windy morning when we adventured into Forest School. This week Mrs Riggall told us that something very scary had happened overnight - huge Mummy dinosaurs were caught in Forest School looking for somewhere safe to lay their eggs! With this in mind, Pine Class set to work creating comfortable dinosaur nests for the Mummy dinosaur to lay her eggs. We had lots of fun building our nests and developed our team working skills by sharing our ideas of how to make the best dinosaur nest. 


I wonder if the Mummy dinosaur will use our nests...

World Book Day


Everybody in Pine Class looked amazing today as we took part in World Book Day! Thank-you to all the Mums, Dads, Grannies and Grandads for making this possible!

Today in Maths we were finding fractions of an amount. We focused on finding quarters today. Did you know that the numerator (the top number) tells you how many quarters to count? Miss Taylor challenged us to find non-unit fractions of an amount. This means the numerator is a number other than 1.

Today in English we learnt about noun phrases - a noun and an adjective together. We came up with lots of noun phrases to describe a dinosaur and then we created our own to describe the different dinosaurs. We also learnt about using appropriate adjectives, for example fluffy wouldn't be the best way to describe a dinosaur's belly!
