Year 1 have created their own story boards to innovate the Little Green Dinosaur story. They have selected the dinosaur characters and the settings/obstacles they encounter. They were able to narrate their ideas and included great adjectives to describe their dinosaurs. 

Story planning.

Acorns pupils have been enjoying our new guided maths lessons. Each day we explore new objectives in our ability groups and rotate to work on different stations. Our station are; Maths with someone (where we do partner challenges and maths discussions),  At work alone, (where we work on written maths for fluency and practice), Teacher Table, (where our teacher challenges us with problem solving or checks for any misconceptions), and finally, Hands on Maths, (where we use manipulative and real life objects to practice our maths in real, concrete situations. 

As part of our topic, "Dinosaur Planet", the children in Acorns asked to find out more about volcanoes. We spent the day learning all about them, made some models and ended the day by taking our volcanoes outside to watch them erupt!
