Reception shared the story ‘Mad about Dinosaurs’. In Literacy they read 3 letter words on dinosaur eggs and matched the two halves that rhymed and in Maths they chose numbered dinosaur eggs and worked out the number that was ‘one more than’ and ‘one less than’ the numbers. During their free play inside they drew and labelled dinosaur pictures and practiced forming their numbers correctly using dinosaur number mats. Outside they went on a ‘Tricky’ word dinosaur egg hunt, made paper plate dinosaurs, used the numbered dinosaur footprints to make a number line and played with the plastic dinosaurs. In Creative time they used the plastic dinosaurs to make footprints with paint and experimented with mixing colours.
