Books – those used in church.

Our IPC topic this half term is all about DINOSAURS.

 

Dinosaurs lived millions of years ago – long before people lived on Earth. No one has ever seen a dinosaur so how do we know anything about them? Fossil evidence and dinosaur bones provide our only clues.

 

Like detectives, we will try to discover what dinosaurs looked like, what they ate and what might have happened to them in the end.

• About the different time periods when dinosaurs lived

 

• How to make a time line

 

• About fossil hunters from around the world

 

• About different ideas to explain why the dinosaurs died out

 

 

In Geography, we’ll be finding out:

 

• What the Earth looked like millions of years ago

 

• Identifying the continents, some countries and which dinosaurs would have lived there

 

 

In Science, we’ll be finding out:

 

• How to make a dinosaur footprint

 

• How to find out what dinosaurs looked like

 

• What dinosaurs ate
