Learning to Succeed, Succeeding to Learn


Welcome to Turtle Class! 


This half term, our big question is:


Would a dinosaur make a good pet?


So far, we have been learning about the world's oceans and continents. We took a dive into the past and discovered how the world's continents were once a super continent called Pangea.


In Science, we have been learning about animal and dinosaur adaptations. We applied our learning to designing our own dinosaurs in different habitats. 


In English, we have been using the text Harry and the Bucketful of Dinosaurs to plan and write our very own stories. 


In Maths, we are securing our knowledge on number and place value, whilst working with tens and ones, and using lots of equipment. 


We have even had a dinosaur workshop! We dug for fossils, like real life paleontologists, and researched our findings. After lunch, we met a terrifyingly friendly T-Rex called Sophie!


In the coming weeks... we are due to receive a very important package from the Natural History Museum... as well as finding something very suspicious left in the playground... (we may need to use our knowledge of carnivores, herbivores and omnivores) surprise
