Dino day 2017

What a fantastic afternoon we have had! We have been visited by children from nursery, and together, all of the infants have been busy with all things dinosaur!

We made dino models with salt dough, we role played out own dinosaur stories, went dotty with dinosaur dot to dots, and have coloured in the most wonderful dinosaur pictures. We thought about how we could make dinosaur noises with musical instruments, and we read some fantastic stories which were all about….can you guess?!

We had such fun, and are looking forward to the new children joining us in September.

Creating our puppets!


Vulcan class have continued to create the most wonderful dinosaur hand puppets. Following our plans, we made templates, then cut out the felt. Most of us have sewn on some features. We had to show some self discipline, as it would have been easy to sew lots and lots of things on that weren’t in our plans!

Those of us that have finished our puppets had to independently sew the puppets up so that we could put our hands in them. Don’t forget to leave the bottom for your hand!!!


Making puppets.

We are busy cutting out, sewing, stitching and finishing our amazing dinosaur puppets. First we drew our designs, next we cut them out of felt. After that we cut out any features our design required, such as scales, hair, horns or tails. Some of us have sewn on buttons for eyes. They are starting to look very scary!

Where does our dinner come from?

Today Hawk performed their class assembly. This term Hawk have been learning ‘Where does our dinner come from?’


We looked at the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and planted our own beanstalks; we hope to see some beans growing soon.

After our visit to Uncle Henry’s we learnt more about how bread is made and looked at the story of The Little Red Hen. We had great fun re-telling it.

We really enjoyed performing our songs ‘Spring Chicken’ and ‘This is the way we make the bread.’

We hope you enjoyed our performance!

Dinosaur Habitats

Today in Canberra we have been making trees from our sticks we collected last week.

Today we have finished putting together our dinosaur habitats. We have worked really hard to make sure our backgrounds are the same as our plans and that they look like prehistoric times.

I have enjoyed our topic lots the best bit has been making my Brontosaurus and his habitat.
