Autumn 1 - Dinosaur Planet

Watch out everyone – the dinosaurs are on the prowl. They’re rampaging across the dusty earth, swishing their enormous tails and baring their fearsome teeth. Let’s explore the Dinosaur Planet. Imagine you’re a palaeontologist (that’s a scientist who studies bones and fossils). Dig deep and discover dazzling dinosaur facts. Create a dinosaur museum and invite visitors to see your awesome dinosaur artefacts. You could even do a dinosaur dance or produce some prehistoric percussion. Which is your favourite dinosaur? The Tyrannosaurus, the Brachiosaurus or the Micropachycephalosaurus? Doyouthinkhesawus? Yes, he did. Run!

Year One had a great time learning all about dinosaurs, fossils and Mary Anning. We enjoyed a dinosaur hunt looking for fossils, eggs and bones, made our own dinosaur landscapes, designed and made ‘Sockasuarus’ puppets, learnt the names of the 7 continents. We learnt what extinction meant and debated on what happened to the dinosaurs- was it a volcanic eruption or a meteor that wiped them out?
