Autumn - Dinosaur Discovery


Welcome back to a new and exciting school year in Sparrows! 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!

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.


We have enjoyed having our families and friend attend a family cafe! We were collaborative and creative within this experience.





We have been scientists this term exploring chemical change and winter wonderland.

We were very fortunate to have a scientist visit us to kick start this experience!



Dr DNA left behind some dinosaur eggs for us to hatch! We used different substancies to observe the changes that were being made! We were very curious when exploring the dinosaur eggs!



We have been exploring the book Beegu and ready getting to comprehend the text. We have been finding information, considering what the pictures are suggesting and we have been acting out parts of the story!
