This half term we arrived in our classroom to find an egg. We waited for a while and then discovered it was a dinosaur. We found it amazing! We have been learning lots of information about dinosaurs. We learnt about when the dinosaurs lived, what they looked like, what type of skeletons they had, what a fossil is and lots of interesting dinosaur names. We did writing linked to dinosaurs and asked a special dinosaur some questions about what it is like to be a dinosaur. We have really enjoyed learning about dinosaurs.

In reading we have concentrated on phase 5 phonics looking at a range of fiction and non-fiction books relating to gardens.
