Dinosaurs and all that Rubbish

Dinosaurs and all that RubbishIn the Autumn term 2017 our whole school focus text was Dinosaurs and all that Rubbish by Michael Foreman.

Every year group read the text and then used it as inspiration for their own pieces of writing. We produced a range of genre including narrative poems, stories, recounts, descriptions, balanced arguments and even some non-fiction writing. We have used the work produced by the children to create the most fantastic displays for our halls and they are very proud to see all of their learning on display.

All of the children were particular excited when T-Rex came to our school! He also bought along some dinosaur eggs and a baby dinosaur that moved!

The story also inspired us in other curriculum areas including art, science, geography and PHSE. Several children went above and beyond by producing their own work at home around the text. These included volcanoes, rockets, dinosaur footprints and information booklets.

What a terrific time we had and look at our roar-some work!
