(Class Teacher) (Teaching Assistant)
Welcome back to St Nicholas at Wade! We look forward to seeing you all!
If you need to speak to us at any time, please book an appointment through the office.
Our topic this term is Dinosaur Planet!
Watch out everyone – the dinosaurs are on the prowl. They’re rampaging across the dusty earth, swishing their enormous tails and baring their fearsome teeth. Let’s explore the Dinosaur Planet. Imagine you’re a palaeontologist (that’s a scientist who studies bones and fossils). Dig deep and discover dazzling dinosaur facts. Which is your favourite dinosaur? The Tyrannosaurus, the Brachiosaurus or the Micropachycephalosaurus? Doyouthinkhesawus? Yes, he did. Run!
In Science we will be exploring which dinosaurs are carnivores, herbivores or omnivores as well as learning about the different animal groups.
In Geography we will be learning our planet and the seven continents.
In Art we will be using a range of materials to design and make our own dinosaur egg.
In DT we will be creating a dinosaur using junk modelling.
At the beginning of each term the children will have their homework sent home in their home learning book. Inside the book will be a variety of cross curricula activities linked to the current topic. The children are welcome to complete one activity or as many as they would like and evidence their learning in their book. Homework is then due in in the final week of each term and will be returned to them at the start of the following term with new homework as well as feedback of what they had achieved in the previous term.
We believe in positive praise and always seek opportunities to reward the children. The children start the day on the “sunflower” and if they do something special they are rewarded by being put onto the “honey pot”. They then receive a sticker and share their good work with the class.
Here are some useful resources:
