How to grow a dinosaur…

On Monday we planted our dinosaur seeds. We couldn’t believe how much it had grown over Monday night. Then we saw something poking out of the soil, it looked like a tail!


We have watched it carefully over the week and to our great excitement we have grown our very own dinosaur! We have made him a bed and given him some water and food. We have written instructions so that other children will be able to grow a dinosaur too.

We did have some dinosaur seeds left over- so the children designed their own seed packets and were each given some seeds to grow their very own dinosaur (these are in their book bags).

You have worked so hard over this first term Turtles and Pufferfish- we are very proud of you. Have a lovely and safe break.


What a wonderful way to start the week. Thank you to everyone who was able to join us in worship, it was lovely to see you all. The children did so well remembering their lines and when it was their turn to add to our world we created.
Well done Year One.


Our amazing dinosaur learning continues…

This we week in English we will be starting our new text- HOW TO GROW A DINOSAUR! It is a fantastic book with beautiful illustrations to really hook the children in. Don’t forget to ask your child about their new learning each day.

In maths  we will be learning to add two amounts together. We will be using all of our maths tools to help us, such as beadstrings, numicon, multilink and counters. If you are counting at home, you can use any objects around the house to help e.g raisins, shoes, lego. We encourage children to draw their objects when counting to help them understand that adding is combining.

Reminder- Tuesday 9th October at 10:00 is Year One’s liturgy. Keep an eye on the blog, if you are unable to make it, we shall post some pictures.

Have a lovely week
