Spring 1 - Tyrannosarus Drip
Whoever heard of a vegetarian T-Rex?
Our story this half term is Tyrannosaurus Drip.
When a baby Duckbill dinosaur ends up in the Tyrannosaurus nest, he feels very out of place. And his gruesome new family with their great big jaws and bloodthirsty habits soon nickname him Drip. But this little dinosaur is not as weedy as he looks. In fact, he’s a real hero!

Our Dinosaur Hunt
On Tuesday 20th January we went on a dinosaur hunt. We had seen a photograph of a T-Rex outside of our school and wanted to see if it was real! We looked all around the school and found lots of clues. Have a look at the pictures below to see what we found.
"There's a dinosaur in the locker!"
"Look at the dinosaur footprints!"
"Quick, look... A clue!"
"Ewwww, dinosaur poo!""Oh no, dinosaur eggs have hatched!"
Our School Trip
On Wednesday 21st January Reception and Year 1 went on a trip to Liverpool Museum. The children were all very well behaved and learnt lots about Dinosaurs. We also got the chance to look around the other exhibitions. It was a lovely day which left us all exhausted and ready for bed!
Our Trip to Liverpool World Museum
Making salt dough to make our Fossils.
This week our learning objective has been to read our writing back. This has helped us make our writing neater and check that what we are writing makes sense. To prove that we have achieved our learning objective the children wrote a news report about the egg that we found on our dinosaur hunt. The children then read this out, in front of a green screen, pretending to be news reporters. Have a look below at some of our ground breaking reports...
A special visitor
Friday 23rd January
What does he eat? What is his name? Where does he live?
Today we were lucky enough to meet a bearded dragon called Milo. One of our parents kindly brought Milo in to meet Year 1 as part of our dinosaur topic. We were able to ask questions about Milo and some of us stroked him, including Miss Oakley!
