Class 1

Welcome to Class 1!


Class Teacher: Mrs Towers

Teaching Assistant: Mrs Payling



Stomp, crash, roar! Watch out – there are dinosaurs about! Yes, that’s right, we’re travelling back in time to the age of the dinosaurs.


This half term our topic is Dinosaur Planet and this week we will begin our topic by going on a ‘Dinosaur Hunt’ around the school grounds, which the children always find very exciting. Keep looking out for pictures on Class Dojo.


We’ll look closely at ancient fossils and study reptiles to understand how dinosaurs may have lived and eventually died out. We’ll learn about the great fossil hunter, Mary Anning, and follow in her footsteps, studying dinosaur teeth and bones to find out what dinosaurs liked to eat. Learning dinosaur names, creating puzzling riddles, writing fantastic fact files and creating exciting dinosaur stories are some of the other activities we’ll be involved in this half term. We’ll also use our artistic skills to make model dinosaurs and to design dinosaur landscapes.
