A cracking half term!

Year 1 were very excited on the final day of half term to discover all of their eggs had hatched into baby dinosaurs!

We observed our dinosaur eggs over 3 days and noticed that the water was helping our dinosaurs to grow big and strong. Some of our eggs even made the colour of the water change!

We discussed why the colour of the water may have changed and how the egg was being dissolved in the water and how the dinosaurs absorbed the water to grow bigger!

We had lots of different types of dinosaur including Spinosaurus, Brachiosaurus and even a T-Rex!

We were very shocked and excited about all of the changes we saw!

Why do you think the colour of the water changed?

Dinosaur eggs have arrived in Year 1!

This afternoon Year 1 have been hatching some dinosaur eggs!

Over the past few days we have been making dinosaur nests with our junk modelling materials for a special surprise  and today we all got our own dinosaur egg to look after.

We put the egg in a cup with some water and then made predictions about what we thought might happen!

‘The egg might break and crack and there will be a dinosaur inside’ – Emanuel

We are all very excited and will be keeping a close eye on our eggs over the next couple of days.

Home Learning 12/10/17

Due in 16/10/17

This week’s home learning is all about division.

Use the examples to help you share the numbers equally into two groups. What items around your home can you find to count with? Can you write the number sentence for your maths? Can you think of a number story?

As a challenge can you try trickier numbers of your own? Can you equally share the numbers into 3 groups?

Diving into Dinosaurs!

1G have been diving into our Dinosaur topic!

We have been making close observations of dinosaurs to produce sketches, paintings and paper plate dinosaurs!

We have used our new palaeontologist skills to ‘dig for fossils’ and create different tools using junk modelling materials.

We have been reading dinosaur books to find out information and then we made our own.

We have also been learning lots of facts about our favourite dinosaurs.

Check back in soon to see what else we get up to!
