Wingham Primary School

It’s all about the children

Term 4

What a busy term we have had!  We have continued learning all about dinosaurs and thinking about our topic question ‘Could a dinosaur live in Wingham?’  We went for a great walk around the village to see if there was food, space and opportunities for a dinosaur to live in Wingham.


In English we looked at the book ‘Katie and the Dinosaurs’ and we wrote some amazing stories based on the book. 


In maths we finished our work on shapes and we looked around the school to see how many 3D shapes we could find. We have also been looking at fractions of shapes and numbers. 

We recently enjoyed a dinosaur workshop which was fantastic.  We looked at fossils, learnt a lot about dinosaurs and some of even acted as a dinosaur!

In science we finished our learning about habitats and looked at Wingham as a habitat for a dinosaur.  We also planted a few more seeds and watched our amazing Amaryllis plants that we planted in December, grow and grow and grow. 

During Book Week, we dressed up as our favourite book character and enjoyed reading a variety of books.  

We continue to love our outdoor learning and we have made dinosaur skeletons from sticks, and dinosaurs using any resources we could find.  We also linked our outdoor learning to PSHE and talked about worries, we made worry sticks to help us if we ever feel worried.

In art we have been looking at Charles Knight who was a paleo artist and we have sketched dinosaurs and then painted them in water colours.  We went to Wingham Wildlife Park where we sketched all the dinosaurs. We also created a dinosaur landscape using collage and paint.

In DT we have been making dinosaur puppets.  We designed our puppet and are now in the process of sewing them.

It was lovely to spend an hour with the significant females in our lives and we made lovely tangram Easter cards!
