What a fun week we have had! We have begun our dinosaurs topic which is rather a favourite of mine 🙂
Throughout the week we have started to learn more about dinosaurs and have of course been writing about them as well! We can’t go and visit dinosaurs because they are all gone forever…what is the word that means all of a kind of living thing is gone forever? (extinct)
Super word challenge: What is the name for someone who learns about and finds out about dinosaurs? (palaeontologist)
What do we call the type of dinosaurs who eat plants? (herbivores)
What do we call the type of dinosaurs who eat meat? (carnivores)
What do we call the type of dinosaurs who eat both plants and meat? (omnivores)
You may need to do some research to answer the following questions…
Can you name a dinosaur who was a herbivore? (Stegosaurus, Triceratops, Brachiosaurus)
Can you name a dinosaur who was a carnivore? (Tyrannosaurus rex, Velociraptor, Allosaurus)
We haven’t learnt about many omnivores and actually there weren’t many; can you find out about any?
This site has some great dinosaur learning clips on. We watched and discussed ‘Domination to extinction‘.

Can you explain what a fossil is?
I hope you have a wonderful weekend full of exploring, reading, writing, sleeping, eating, singing, dancing, playing, talking, homework, Mathletics and of course don’t forget to comment on the blog!
It will be Blue Team‘s turn for Show and Tell on Tuesday. Please only bring in toys when it is your colour team’s turn for Show and Tell as they can easily get lost 😦
Please wear your PE kit on Monday and make sure all your belongings (school uniform, PE kit, book bag etc.) have your name in/on them.
On Friday it will be Sports Day! Please come to school in your proper school PE kit ready to get started! Adults if you would like to attend, help out and be a part of Sports Day then we would love to have you; please let one of the Reception team know 🙂
I look forward to seeing you again on Monday! 🙂
