We have two topics this half term:

 

  1.  Do you want to be friends?
  2. Which was the biggest dinosaur?

 

Do you want to be friends?

 

  • Friendship:  Our children come from many different nursery and school settings, so it is important that we spend time getting to know each other.  We plan to do this in a variety of ways.  Our classroom activities are designed to be sociable, to encourage the children to notice and engage with each other.  The children are already making new friends and sharing information with each other about their likes and dislikes.  We will be looking at our school rules to understand how they help us to be a good friend and play a variety of games which will help us to find out interesting things about each other.
  • People who help us in school:  We are going to spend time getting to know the different adults in school.  Mrs Dunnicliff, our school cook, already knows the names of all of your children and lunchtime is a happy, sociable time.  We will visit Mrs Bell (Office Manager) and Mrs Middleton (Head Teacher) to find out where they work and what they do.  As part of exploring our wider community we will be visiting church.  We will explore the church and take part in a mock baptism. Our objective is to ensure that your children are comfortable in the wider school environment.    

 

  1. Which was the biggest dinosaur?

 

We have begun by enjoying the story, Harry and his Bucketful of Dinosaurs by Ian Whybrow and Adrian Reynolds.  The children are enjoying learning the different names of the dinosaurs, which has led us to talk about how important our own names are.  During the first half term we will enjoy other dinosaur related stories such as, ‘Dinosaurs love underpants’ and ‘Dinosaur Bones’.  We will use a clip from the film, ‘The Good Dinosaur’, to help with our discussions about friendship. 

 

We will be using a variety of resources to learn facts about dinosaurs.  The children will begin to think about where some of the dinosaurs lived and what they ate.  This will lead us to ask questions such as;

 

      • Why did some dinosaurs have sharp teeth?
      • Why did some dinosaurs have long necks?

 

You may have already seen pictures of our dinosaur museum on our class page.  The children are having a great time making tickets, exploring dinosaur bones and painting pictures for the gallery.  Out on the Key Stage One playground, we will use chalk to demonstrate the size of

the biggest dinosaur to help the children understand just how impressive they were.  As part of our maths curriculum we will be ordering the dinosaurs by size.

In a couple of weeks, the children may come to school to find an interesting object in the school playground.  We will be using our knowledge and imaginations to think about what it could be and how it arrived at school!
