This half term (Spring H2 2018), we are immersing ourselves in our new topic, Do-you-think-he-saur-us?
For our Stunning Start we began by creating 3 dimensional masks with skin patterning typically thought to adorn dinosaurs millions of years ago. After that we discovered what coprolite is (dinosaur poo) and how these trace fossils can provide vital clues to palaeontologists about the existence and eating habits of these pre-historic creatures. To really engage with our new topic we even made our own coprolite!
Currently, we are eagerly anticipating the arrival of author N. S Blackman. During Literacy lessons, we have been studying his first book The Secret Dinosaur: Giants Awake and we are very much looking forward to learning some creative writing techniques that we can use in our own version of the sequel, Hunters Attack, complete with illustrations.
