TOPICS

Dinosaur Planet

Stomp, crash, RRRAGH!  Watch out everyone – the dinosaurs are on the prowl! They’re rampaging across the dusty earth, swishing their enormous tails and baring their fearsome teeth. Imagine you’re a palaeontologist, dig deep and discover dazzling dinosaur facts. This term the children will develop their knowledge of prehistory. Learning about dinosaurs and fossils, and the amazing discoveries of palaeontologists such as Mary Anning.

Which is your favourite dinosaur?  The Tyrannosaurus rex, the Brachiosaurus or the Micropachycephalosourus?

Doyouthinkhesawus?  Yes he did…RUN!

Bright lights, big city

This project teaches children about the physical and human characteristics of the United Kingdom, including a detailed exploration of the characteristics and features of the capital city, London.

The children will watch a video of Queen Elizabeth II video and retrieve and recall details. They will discuss questions such as ‘Who is the Queen, and what does she do? Do you think the monarch is important?’ 

Although Queen Elizabeth will not be coming, they are all invited to a special, royal garden party to celebrate the monarch's long and magnificent reign. 

The Enchanted Woodland

If you go down to the woods today you’re in for a BIG surprise. Foxes and badgers, voles and mice, beady eyed owls in the swaying tree tops. Beneath the leaves are tiny footprints – animal or imp? You decide. Deciduous or evergreen? Can you match a leaf to its tree? Can you match a petal to its flower? Let’s build a den, stick by stick and branch by branch. Or we could make a teeny tiny home for a woodland fairy. Then let’s party down in the woods with Mr Fox and all his woodland friends. We’d better not get lost. Let’s leave a trail of conkers as we go. At last, it’s time to rest by the woodland fire, listening to stories and toasting our sweet, gooey marshmallows. Yum, yum.
