This week we will be exploring the differences between fiction and non-fiction texts. This week we will be reading "How to grow a dinosaur" by Carol Hart.

Before reading share with your child that a fictional story is a story that has been made up.

Share the story together up until page 8 ( end time stamp 1.56), do they think it is a fictional story or a non-fiction text.  



1.  Draw a picture of what you think Albie will grow. Can they label it. 

2. Role play what you think will happen next in the story. 



Play the ladybird spots game.

Matching numbers 6-10. 



Explain to the children that nobody knows what colour the dinosaurs were or what their skin looked like. 

Can you paint a picture of what you think a dinosaur might have looked like?


You can use the templates of a dinosaur below or draw your own. 



This afternoon we have P.E. Can you create an obstacle course? 

Who can complete the course the fastest?
