ROAR! Welcome To Spring Term in Year One!
During the first half of our Spring Term our topic will be 'Dangerous Dinosaurs!". We will be learning all about dinosaurs which will link well with our Science topic 'Animals including Humans'. We will look at the different species of dinosaurs and how they can be sorted into categories with regards to their varying diets and physical features. Additionally we will look at their skeletons and compare these to that of our own and other animals which are still alive today.
During our Art and Design lessons we will look at using clay to make dinosaur eggs and sculptures. In Design and Technology we will look at moving pictures and learn how to make these using sliders, flaps, leavers and spinners.
In Literacy we will begin with a story called 'We're Going on a Dinosaur Hunt". Following the structure of the well known story 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt' our teacher has adapted the story to fit in with our topic. This will give us the opportunity to learn a new story and finally write our own. Following this we will write information texts about dinosaurs as well as dinosaur poems using our senses.
Our Numeracy work will initially continue under the topic of money. We will then move on to looking at fractions and measuring.
