 Long Term Planning 2018/2019



We hope you all had a lovely half term.  We have started our new topic of 'Do-you-think-they-saurus'. After assembly we came back to a suspicious egg. We asked the children what could it be? Where has it come from? The children said

"it's giant"

"I think it is a bird's egg"

"It is a dinosaur egg!"


We then asked the children what is going to happen to the egg. What shall we do to keep it safe? They said..

"It's going to hatch in 5 minutes!"

"We need to keep it warm"


Another child had said that we should take an x-ray of the egg so that we can see what is inside! 


Throughout this term, the children will be learning about dinosaurs, the history of when dinosaurs were alive, discovering what dinosaurs ate and much more.

The Dinosaur came back!

We had another visit from the Dinosaur over the weekend and the egg hatched into a baby Tyrannosaurus!

The children thoroughly enjoyed our coach trip to London to see the Dinosaur Exhibition at the Natural History Museum. We saw lots of exciting artefacts such as skulls, teeth, claws, eggs, fossils and the skeletal bones that made up the dinosaurs of a triceratops, Iguanodon, stegosaurus (which included the plates and spikes) and many more! 


We hope your child enjoyed talking about what the discovered.

We will be uploading our phonics learning for the week to help you support your child. As we have looked at all phase 2 and 3 sounds, we will be looking at compound words and ending sounds and look at initial clusters and final clusters of sounds. 




In phonics the children will be learning these sounds:

s   a   t   p  d  g  o  c  k  ck   u  h f  ff l ll ss j v w x yzz qu ch sh th


We will also be learning these tricky words:


    the  to  go  no   I   into  he  she  


Children will also be decoding and reading these keywords:

The children have been building the tricky words using magnetic letters and also spotting the tricky words in different sentences.
