Spring Term

This term we are following the theme of ‘Dinosaurs’. We will be stepping back in time to the Jurassic period and learning all about these fascinating creatures that roamed the Earth. We will be exploring the World, countries and landscapes, which make up the Earth and learning about the difference between; past, present and future.

The children will be learning facts about different types of dinosaurs;  What are dinosaurs? | Natural History Museum

What they ate?          Where they lived?              What size they were?

We will be comparing sizes of the dinosaurs, putting objects into size order and learning to use vocabulary like smallest, tallest, and largest. We will also be focusing on learning the names of 2D and 3D shapes and have fun spotting them in and around the environment.

The children will have fun in our ‘Dino Den’, dusting off fossils and digging for bones to help develop fine motor skills, to support strong hands for writing. During PE sessions the children will be improving their throwing and catching skills and taking part in simple team building activities to encourage collaboration and learn to manage their own risks by exploring apparatus.
