Let’s Explore- Dinosaurs
Dosbarth Apple had a special visitor to class today to help us start our Let’s explore Dinosaurs topic.
First the children went on a virtual tour of the dinosaur display at the National History Museum. They really enjoyed seeing the dinosaur skeletons.
The children made their own binoculars as part of their explorer’s equipment. They thought about what colour would be best. They decided that green and brown would be good camouflage.
The children chose 2 small dinosaurs and worked together to make a suitable habitat for them with all the natural materials they had collected.
We ended our day with a ride on Triceratops!
Spring term 2022
Happy New Year everyone. We hope you had a lovely Christmas and enjoyed spending time with your family.
Monday 10th January - Topic Immersion Day
Our whole school topic this term is 'Let's explore'.
We will be having an immersion day on Monday to launch our exciting new topic.
Please can children come to school dressed as an explorer -
there is no need to go out and buy anything for this simply get creative with things you already have at home.
Here are some ideas for you:
Wear cream, brown, khaki coloured clothing.
Wear a cap/hat covered in leaves etc.
Make a badge, compass.
*We will be making binoculars in school so please could they bring in 1 kitchen roll if possible.
* Please could you also help your child collect a bag of natural materials over the weekend e.g. leaves, moss, sticks grass and small stones for us to use on Monday .
Thank you for your continued support.

If you have any problems logging in there is a short tutorial on the school website in the Parents section under Home Schooling Help.Work completed can be turned in on Google Classroom or done on paper and brought back into school when we return. It is important that all children try to engage as much as possible .
