The team in class 4 is:

Class teacher- Miss Mykytiuk

Our topic this half term will be ‘Dinosaur Planet’


Stomp, crash, RRRAGH! Watch out everyone – the dinosaurs are on the prowl!

They’re rampaging across the dusty earth, swishing their enormous tails and baring their fearsome teeth…

Let’s explore the Dinosaur Planet! Imagine you’re a palaeontologist (that’s a scientist who studies bones and fossils). Dig deep and discover dazzling dinosaur facts.

Create your own dinosaur museum and invite visitors to see your awesome dinosaur artefacts. You could even do a dinosaur dance or produce some prehistroic percussion!

Which is your favourite dinosaur? The Tyrannosaurus rex, the Brachiosaurus or the Mircopachycephalosaurus?

Doyouthinkhesawus? Yes he did… RUN!
