We have now come to the end of our Dinosaur Detectives Unit and this coming week we have our Reflection Week. The children will have the opportunity to reflect on all their new skills and knowledge that they have learned across their Dinosaur Unit. We have selected a different theme of Unit focused learning each day. The children will have opportunities to choose their favourite learning activities from the unit and show and discuss their new learning with the other children and teachers.

Our Nursery Exit Point will be the children’s Dinosaur Party! The children will take responsibility in making special dino food for their party. We will use our dinosaur cookie cutters to bake biscuits. We will make dinosaur nests using cereal. We will also make a herbivore snack with cucumber. Yum yum! We have learned lots of dinosaur songs and dances during this unit which we will reflect on during the party.  In class we have been making all different kinds of dinosaur costumes which the children will wear at our party.

Remember to wear any dinosaur t-shirts, pyjamas or anything you may own linked to dinosaurs on Friday. Don’t worry if you don’t have any as we have made special costumes that we can wear in class.

The children will have a big focus on the personal quality Reflection (which was previously called Thoughtfulness). They will practice thinking back on their favourite learning, games, role-play and crafts in the Unit. We will use our personal Learning Journey books to help us to reflect. On Wednesday  morning our morning question for children/parents will be to look through your learning journey book to reflect on together.
