This week we have been learning all about the stegosaurus. We looked at non-fiction books and used the internet to find out lots of information about the stegosaurus. We then used this information to write a fact file. We worked cooperatively to make a large stegosaurus using different textures. We have also been practising some songs about the triceratops and stegosaurus. We also worked collectively as a group incorporating all our personal goals in setting up our Dinosaurs role play area in our classroom.
We also drew pictures and wrote sentences to record what makes us happy for celebrating the World Happiness Day on 20th March.
We have been learning to differentiate between 2D and 3D shapes by talking about their properties.
