A Roaring Success!

Roaring Success

We have all been so engaged in our ‘Jurassic World’ topic, that we will be sad when it comes to an end!

To begin with, we found a dinosaur egg which was quite a shock! When it hatched, there was a baby dinosaur inside! We cared for it and made it a nice new house out of junk modelling materials.

Our trip to the Great North Museum was a huge success and we couldn’t believe how big the T-Rex skeleton was!

We have focused on the story of ‘Tyrannosaurus Drip’ by Julia Donaldson and the children have produced some fantastic writing. We did a role on the wall where we discussed Drip’s feelings and appearance. We made story maps to retell the story and used these to produce some fabulous writing.

Linked to the story, we also made our own dinosaur eggs using rice krispies and marshmallows. We have all thoroughly enjoyed this topic-teachers included!
