Autumn 2 - Animals & Dinosaurs!

For our topic this term we are learning all about dinosaurs. What type of dinosaurs existed? When did they exist on Earth and why did they become extinct?

 

Why don't you research dinosaur facts with your child.  Follow the links to different websites to help you research dinosaur facts and your child can come and share with the class what they have found out.

 

  • How did a pterodactyl get its food?
  • How did dinosaurs get their food?
  • Did dinosaurs roar in their sleep?
  • Did dinosaurs eat grass?
  • Why did dinosaurs roar?
  • Why did dinosaurs make noises?
  • Why couldn't dinosaurs fly?

What we have found out when researching about dinosaurs:

 

  • Pterodactyl's were not dinosaurs they were flying reptiles - Michelle "a reptile has scaly skin". 

 

  • Pterodactyl's ate insects and fish. 

 

  • Did you know dinosaurs who were carnivores had strong legs to help them run fast to catch their prey?

 

  • Gabriel - "A Stegosaurus' plates change colour to stop other dinosaurs eating and attacking them  like a T-Rez which is a carnivore."

 

  • Fabricio - when talking about a Triceratops - "It has 3 horns".

 

  • Some dinosaurs are herbivores like a Stegosaurus, Triceratops and a Brachiosaurus. Others such as T-Rex and Velociraptor are carnivores. There were even some that are omnivores (they eat meat and plants).

 

"Triceratops," Dinosaurs Songs by StoryBots

If you can count to three, you can easily spot a Triceratops. One, two, three...check out his horns!

StoryBots - Dinosaur Songs | Tyrannosaurus Rex plus more | Cartoons for Kids | WildBrain Cartoons

Dance, rap and strut along whilst learning about different dinosaurs! The StoryBots are curious little creatures who live beneath our screens, offering a world of learning and fun for kids and parents.

"Stegosaurus," Dinosaurs Songs by StoryBots

You can tell a Stegosaurus from the plates on his back. They're for attracting mates, regulating body temperature, and looking cool!

Science

We are learning about animals:

  • naming different animals
  • labelling animal body parts
  • sorting and grouping animals in different groups e.g. animals that have a tail, four legs etc]
  • categorising (grouping) animals by what they eat (carnivores - meat eaters, herbivores - plant eaters & omnivores - eats both meat and plants)
  • grouping animals - insects, amphibians, reptiles, mammals, birds & fish.

Maths 

 

This half term we are:

- counting in 1s and 2s from any given number forwards & backwards.

- saying one more/one less than a number e.g. 1 more than 17 is 18 (we know more than means adding one) 1 less than 52 is 51 (less means fewer/take away).

- recalling number bonds to 10.

- counting in 1s and 2s forwards and backwards from any number (up to 100).

Autumn 1 - All about me and where I live!

Guided Reading

 

We have been looking at a video clip of 'Bubbles' and talking about describing the beach where the little girl was walking along and found some bubbles. 

 

We used our senses to explore what we could see about the beach in the hear, what we could hear and how the sand would feel. We did this by have a tuff tray of sand and using our hands to feel to help us describe what the sand felt like.

Geography - Where do I live? Where is our school?

 

We have been looking at where we live and what is in our local area. We have been using google maps to find where our house is from aerial view. We have also been giving instructions using positional language (go forwards, backwards, turn left & turn right) of how to find our house when using google maps. 

We have explored our school by google maps and looking at aerial view photos of our school. We have begun to develop our map skills by drawing a map of how we can get from one area in our playground to another.

 

Picture 1
Why not google maps your house? Our school? Liverpool city centre?

Science - My body and senses

We have been naming parts of the body we can see and cannot see.

 

Michelle - "spine"

Michael - "skull"

Riley - "wrist"

 

We have been investigating and carrying out simple tests on using out senses. We have used blindfolds to paint pictures like the artist Lisa Fittipaldi. This helped us realise how much people who are blind/have a sight impairment feel and how much they rely on using their sense of touch.

 

Guided Reading - Prediction Skills

 

We have been reading 'Monster's' in our guided reading. We met a lot of different monsters throughout the book but there was one called 'Cruncher' who was described  as the scariest monster. We predicted what we thought Cruncher looked like:

Picture 1
Picture 2
Picture 3
BUT it turned out Cruncher was a Stag (male deer)! (We did not see that one coming!)

English

In English we have been working on saying aloud simple sentences out loud. We have been practising clapping the rhythm of the sentences out in different voices e.g. singing, robot etc numerous times before writing the sentences down. Please practise this at home with children.

 

We have also been very busy with reading 'Mr Men adventures with dinosaurs'. We have been labelling the Mr Men characters using capital letters for names of the characters.
