Year one have been enjoying their dinosaur topic this term. The teachers have definitely spotted some dinosaur experts amongst the Year group who have loved sharing their knowledge. In Science, the children have been learning about carnivores, herbivores and omnivores. To begin with the children learnt about the features of an omnivore, carnivore and herbivore. They produced some fantastic writing explaining that a carnivore has sharp teeth to help them eat meat and a herbivore has flat teeth to help them eat plants. Did you know the longest dinosaur tooth ever recorded belonged to a T. Rex, and they were a whopping 12 inches long! 

Following this the children were able to group dinosaurs into herbivores, omnivores and carnivores and then group a variety of animals into herbivores, omnivores and carnivores. They enjoyed looking at the structure of the animals bones and teeth and were able to use this research to determine which group the animal would fit into.


Well done Year One you have produced some fantastic work. Watch this space for some budding palaeontologists!
