This half term we have been learning all about dinosaurs. We came into school to find a dinosaur nest and large footprints in our classroom! We had to write a letter to the National History Museum to discover what dinosaur was in our school. They replied with the shocking news that 5 species of dinosaurs were roaming around Fellgate!
In DT we made poppy cupcakes for Remembrance Day. We had to roll, cut and shape icing to place on top of a cake. We also practised our measuring skills and made Christmas tree decorations using lolly sticks.
In Science we have been learning about the fossilisation process. We sequenced and described how dinosaur fossils were made. We went on a visit to Winter Gardens to look at some real fossils, bones and teeth. We then made dinosaur headbands and went on a dinosaur trail around the gardens.
Some children attended Temple Park for an athletics competition where we used lots of skills we have been learning in our PE lessons with coach Adam. Such as a variety jumping, aiming and throwing.
In Music we have been learning to play Jingle Bells and We Wish You a Merry Christmas on the keyboard. We followed sheet music and played the correct keys. We also had lots of fun learning our Christmas nativity songs and performed Santa’s Hat in front of all our parents and carers.
In RE we have been learning all about Christianity and why light is important at Christmas. To help us we made Christingles and described what each element stood for.
Just some of our learning! Another busy and fun filled half term!
