Spring 1

Time Travellers

Dinosaurs - Then and Now

Time Travellers encourages an exciting start to the new Spring Term where the children are emersed in awe and wonder about their world.

We visit the Great North Museum and explore the ancient and new by studying dinosaurs and their modern relatives – crocodiles and alligators.

We encourage the children to study non-fiction texts and share their knowledge by creating their own museum as the topic grows.

We partner up with Gatorland Florida to become real life keepers and an escaped fictional alligator (Alan) causes chaos when he appears at school. How will we ever get him home to the marshlands of Florida?
