Our completed T-rex has now been named- he is called Football Timmy- the name suggested by Jessica won the most votes in the "Name the Dinosaur" poll!
Having named him and reminded ourselves of his carnivorous lifestyle, we set about making up stories about him. We told our story ideas to our talk partners. The next English lesson was a recap on the use of story maps which we began with Mrs Rawsthorne last year.
Next we all had a try at drawing our own story maps to tell our dinosaur tales.
We completed our dinosaur story week with a really enjoyable art day. We experimented with a variety of media- paint, pencils, pastels, collage materials and plasticene. The children's art work is now on display in the classroom for you to see on Parents' Evening.
