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 counting accurately and creating our own dinosaur eggs! We have been responsible for checking our learning to make sure we had counted the right amount! 


Art Week


This week we have been very creative! We have explored how to use control to make a variety of line types. We had to be reflective to improve our learning over this week.




Our final published piece of class art!



We have been collaboratively reading the book - Harry and the Bucketful of Dinosaurs. We have been unpicking parts of the book considering the emotions and chooses the Author made when writing this.



We have had our first Curiosity Cafe this half term which was a great experience for us to share our Maths learning challenges with our families and friends! 




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 Friday, so please return your child's reading book every Friday. Please read with your child at least 3 times a week and record this in your white reading diaries.


PE will be on Monday 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.
