Our big question for term 4 is 'What dinosaur is the best'
The children have already been posing questions such as, 'What does a T-Rex footprint look like?' and 'Why do we still find dinosaur bones?' We will become dinosaur experts, recognising instantly which is a carnivore and which is a herbivore by looking at their teeth, jaws, claws, protective body plates and spines. We will be learning and using new chilli challenge vocabulary throughout the day in our teacher lead learning and no doubt through our busy time play.
Below is our termly topic map as well as our 'chilli challenge' vocabulary. If you have any questions, special skills or interesting subject knowledge linked to any of our topics please let us know; we would love to invite you in.
Mild chilli words are words that your children should know the meaning of and use them in everyday conversation.
Spicy chilli words are words that your children may have heard but perhaps don't yet fully understand their meaning. They are words that would be in an adults everyday vocabulary.
Hot chilli words are very topic specific and may require discrete teaching. It is our aim that your child will be able to use them correctly and in context by the end of the topic.
