Dinosaur Models

In Year 1, we have been practising the skills we need to create our own dinosaur model. We want to make our dinosaurs strong so we decided to use paper maché on top of a balloon to form the body. We can’t wait to finish our dinosaur models!

Exploring the school grounds

In Year 1, we explored the school grounds in the hope to find lots of wonderful minibeasts. We managed to find spiders, worms, ladybirds, ants beetles and bees. We are now going to plan, design and build our very own habitat to encourage more minibeasts to live on the school grounds.. but hopefully not in our classroom!
