Dinosaur Activities

Confident Individuals       Effective Contributors       *Successful Learners

Presently we are unable to access our photographs to blog but we have been very busy in the Stars class.

We planted sunflower seeds in pots for the school meadow. They are growing well and will soon need canes to support them. We also planted sweet pea plants in our garden planter. We’ve built another wigwam for them to climb up.

We continue to enjoy our dinosaurs theme making salt dough fossils and a sediment sand jar to show how fossils were made. We created a mod roc head for our giant dinosaur in class and made dinosaur footprints to compare sizes with our own.

World Earth Day

Responsible Citizens

We planted nasturtium seeds in the garden, for Earth Day, and built a wigwam to support the climbing plants as they grow. We must remember to keep them well watered! We did recycling and energy saving activities plus made a global cupcake flower picture. We also found that reading a story using a torch is not easy so we had better not waste electricity. At science we did a water pollution experiment. What will grow best……..the seeds with water or the seeds with lemon (acid) water? We will see next week.

The Stars are back!

The whole Stars class were delighted to be back together again this week, especially as it involved Red Nose Day. We did lots of activities including making faces, icing biscuits, creating superhero masks, playing promethean board games and doing a red volcano experiment. We even enjoyed a red nose and spoon relay race! We had great fun.

Indoor Picnic

Plan a picnic to have indoors as it will probably be too cold to have outside. You could lay a rug on the floor. Make your favourite sandwiches , some fairy cakes or simply enjoy your favourite crisps, fruit and juice. Why not send some photographs of your picnic.


Build a Den

Use rugs, old sheets, cushions off the couch, dining room table and chairs or clothes horse to build a den. These are only suggestions. Read a book inside your den. It’s fun when using a torch to read.

I hope you enjoy trying some of these activities.

Have Fun! Stay Safe! 😎
