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’.

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!
