Autumn 2 – Dinosaurs

Miss Zeina and Mr Spencer have truly been impressed with these amazing dinosaur projects the children did over the half term break! We are so excited to learn all about these ancient species!

Inspired by Mary Anning, a famous fossil hunter, we had our own fossil dig! We were so excited and look at what we found:



superheroOur topic is Superheroes!

This half term we will be learning all about superheroes and villains! We will build our knowledge of adjectives, nouns and verbs as well as include expanded noun phrases in our writing.  In Science we will learn all about materials and in RE, we will learn about the importance of Saints in Christianity.

We created some fantastic 3D projects on dinosaur habitats, volcanoes and lots of other things related to dinosaurs. Check out our Topic display below…












We took a trip to the Natural History Museum to learn more about dinosaurs…





We had the best trip and learned so much! But the very next day something crazy happened to us…


We had an invasion! – a T-Rex invasion! Eeek! We entered our classroom and discovered that it had been destroyed…  

We found a letter attached to a flipped over chair telling us that the T-Rex was fuming with us! He was angry because we had visited the museum and paid more attention to Sophie the Stegosaurus! He told us that he had stolen eggs and fossils from the museum and hidden them in our school! He left us clues to track down the stolen artefacts.










For Maths so far this term we have been focusing on addition and subtraction. We have had great fun being investigators completing puzzle challenges and working well in teams.









Our Science learning:

We have had an exciting half term learning about materials and their properties.

We are so lucky to have these brave fire fighters 🙂

Our bossy King has been demanding freshly baked bread!

The bossy King has been demanding to try new, freshly baked produce each week…

We don't mind though... The bread was delicious!                        We don’t mind though… The bread was delicious!


Hmm, I wonder what he is going to demand that we bake next week?
