Welcome back. Hope you all had a fantastic Easter. Our caterpillars finally hatched!! Unfortunately they hatched during the holidays (2 days after we broke up). Miss Bryant took them to Mrs Byron’s house and we released them with her children. Miss Bryant made a slide show of pictures so we could see what they looked like.
This term our topic is Dinosaurs. This week we made a ‘Dinosaur Cave and Dig’ in our classroom. We have added our own pictures and labels. We have put sand inside and hidden fossils and made bits out of junk to help us to explore. We have been learning about non-fiction books and have identified key features. We found out information about the T-Rex and the Triceratops and we will use this information to create our own non-fiction books.
For our dinosaur display we painted our own dinosaurs. During our creative time some children decided to make their own dinosaur masks and wings. We have also created a dinosaur egg. We are hoping it will hatch soon.
In maths we have been subtracting numbers using a number line and counting back on our fingers. We have also been answer number problems.
