This coming week we continue Learning Block 4; Dinosaur Dance. We will begin by introducing the story Dinosaurumpus. It is a fun book that the children will practice making up actions for. It will involve a lot of imaginative moving and will give the children an opportunity to practice controlling their body movements. We will also be making a lot of different types of dinosaur costumes. At the end of the week the children will parade them in the hall!

Here is the story if you would like to continue the children’s learning at home too;


The Big question is linked to our story this week; How do you think these dinosaurs moved about? We will answer this through an enquiry into the different ways dinosaurs moved around. We will explore the different ways they move using our own bodies.

This week we will practice using the Personal Quality Cooperation. We will be making a lot of costumes this week and this will require the children to work together in a team and share ideas.
