We have had a busy week learning about Venn diagrams and Carroll diagrams. We used these to sort 2d shapes and dinosaurs. We linked our learning about dinosaur features and used these as our criteria for example, whether a dinosaur had horns, plates or both.
During Walking with Dinosaurs, we learnt about the habitat of dinosaurs and the different types of places their skeletons were found. We then designed our own habitat for the dinosaurs we created last week.
We have now innovated our 'What is a giant?' text map into a 'What is a dinosaur?' text map and will be using these text maps to write our information text next week.
We are just about to have our class treat and watch the BFG - we are 'as happy as dancing oranges' to be watching the film.
