Autumn 1 - Dinosaur Discovery


Welcome back to a new and exciting school year in Blackbirds! This term our topic is Dinosaur Discovery... We have already had a visit from our friendly Lowestoft Dinosaurs!


For our class sparkling start we went on a dinosaur hunt around the school to see what evidence we could find that Dinosaurs had been in our school!

We found bones, food, fossils, foot prints and Dinosaur eggs!




We have been recreating roles as dinosaurs considering our movements and control as Dinosaurs are very scary creatures!


       We have been curious to recreate and tell the story of Dinosaur Farm. We used talk for writing to create actions for the story to help us remember all parts of the story; beginning, middle and end. We then planned them collaboratively with our friends and wrote each section.



Basic information


White reading diaries

These books are used as a home to school communication and need to be brought in everyday. These diaries are a form of communication and any accidents or incidences will be reported in these books for your information.


Our class library slot is Wednesday, so please return your child's library book and home reading book every Wednesday. Please read with your child at least 3 times a week and record this in your white reading diaries.


PE will be on Wednesday and Friday mornings, this can sometimes changed to staff training so we suggest you keep your child's PE kit in school all week.


Forest schools will be every other Friday and will fit in with our topic this term so if your child can have wellies in school at all times please.
