Our Curriculum Project for Autumn 2 2019

Dinosaur Planet

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, we'll visit a museum, look closely at ancient fossils and study reptiles to understand how dinosaurs may have lived and eventually became extinct. We will 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 will also use our artistic skills to make model dinosaurs and to design dinosaur landscapes.
