We are continuing with our work based on the story ‘Harry and the bucketful of Dinosaurs.’
This week in the Discovery Room we have been searching for dinosaurs in the ‘foam'. The foam looked like a large swamp, which we found out that dinosaurs like to ‘bathe’ in! We even wrote the letters we had been learning in class in the swamp! We got really messy but it was great fun! During the week we also had to ‘chip away’ at large, solid blocks of ice to see what might be hidden inside! Guess what we found, - more dinosaurs, and some were really large! We were very good at counting the dinosaurs after all the ice had melted!
In the Maths Room we have been playing ‘dinosaur counting games’, ordering numbers of dinosaurs and looking at how many ways we can arrange a group of five of them. You wouldn’t believe how many different ways you can do this with only five!
In the Literacy Room we made up names for our dinosaurs just like Harry did in the story. It was good fun naming them, we then wrote their names on special labels. We thought of names beginning with the letters we have been learning in class and made really good attempts at forming the letters carefully! We have been practising writing these letters in class, some can be quite tricky!
We can’t wait to see what we shall be doing next week!
