Outdoor Learning

We’re going on a dinosaur hunt. 
Explore… your natural woodland and go on a dinosaur hunt. 
Place some photos or toys of dinosaurs around the area and go on a Dinohunt. There will be one leader and the rest will follow, change the leader every now and then and explore different paths that all the children have to follow. 
Create…  ​a dinosaur picture out of rocks or any other natural objects the children can find. Take a photo of the creation so the natural objects can remain in the woods. 
 
Reflect… Sitting round the fire circle or somewhere quiet the children can join in with the verbal story ‘We’re going on a dinosaur hunt’:
“We’re going on a dinosaur hunt we’re going to find a big one. What a beautiful day. We’re not scared. 
How we will get there? Quick into the time machine (whir whir whir) 
Out of the time machine. 
 
We’re going on a dinosaur hunt we’re going to find a big one. What a beautiful day. We’re not scared. 
Uh oh a rainforest. A tropical rainforest. 
We can’t go over it we can’t go under it. Oh no, we’ve got to go through it. (Slash slash slash). 
 
We’re going on a dinosaur hunt we’re going to find a big one. What a beautiful day. We’re not scared. 
Uh oh a rainstorm. A really heavy rainstorm. 
We can’t go over it. We can’t go under it. Oh no, we’ve got to go through it. (Run splash, run splash, run splash) 
 
We’re going on a dinosaur hunt we’re going to find a big one. What a beautiful day. We’re not scared. 
Uh oh a muddy swamp. A big muddy swamp. We can’t go over it. We can’t go under it. Oh no, we’ve got to go through it. (Squelch, squerch, squelch, squerch) 
 
We’re going on a dinosaur hunt we’re going to find a big one. What a beautiful day. We’re not scared. 
Uh oh a a river . a deep wide river. We can’t go over it. We can’t go under it. Oh no, we’ve got to go through it. (Swim, swim, swim). 
 
What that? Two arms with claws. Hard scaly skin and dark beady eyes. 
ITS A T -REX  
 
Quick back through the river, swim swim swim. 
Back through the swamp, squelch, squerch, squelch, squerch.
Back through the rain storm, run splash, run splash, run splash. 
Back through the rain forest, slash slash slash.
Back into the time machine. Whir whir whir. Out of the time machine and we are back at home. We are never going on a dinosaur hunt again!”  
 
Pretend to be a dinosaur 
 
Explore… Using your amazing dinosaur sense of smell can you find two things that smell different and bring them to the fire circle or your quiet place to talk about later. 
 
Create… A dinosaur nest. Use grass and twigs to create dinosaur nests. Find there own eggs and they can choose to paint them. Once dry they can keep them in there nest and leave them outside. 
 
Reflect… after you have made your nest for your eggs you can now talk about the two things you found that smell different . What are they, what do they feel like?

Reading and Phonics

Every child receives a daily phonics session in which they are taught to read and write.

Maths Calculation Policies

Please find below our school calculation policy for each of the four operations. Each policy covers both the mental and written strategies taught in each year group. Whilst the documents show the strategies used across all year groups to enable you to see how children will progress, please focus on the strategies used in your child’s current year group. The calculation policy has been designed to develop children’s conceptual understanding of each operation and as such we ask that children are not taught strategies which are used by children further up the school.
