Dinosaur Roar by Paul and Henrietta Strickland

Hello everyone!

Our new topic this term is Dinosaurs and this week’s story is Dinosaur Roar by Paul and Henrietta Strickland.  It’s great fun.  There are lots of rhymes in the story, listen out for those.  There are also some new words like meek or fierce.  Do you know what they mean?  One means that they are gentle, quiet, shy.  The other means the exact opposite, scary, frightening, dangerous.  Can you figure out which one is which from the story?

We will be finding out lots of things about Dinosaurs this half term.  Do you know what a Dinosaur is?  You might have seen some at the Natural History Museum.  They are creatures that lived a long, long, long, long, long, long, long, long, long time ago.  So long ago there were no people around.   Dinosaurs are now extinct.  That means aren’t anymore Dinosaurs alive.  That’s probably a good thing because there were a lot of Dinosaurs that were enormous!!!!  Can you do some investigating about Dinosaurs?  People who learn and know all about Dinosaurs are called Paleontologists.  It’s a big word that’s a lot of fun saying.   They even get to dig up the bones of Dinosaurs!  Have you made a fossil, the instructions are on our blog.   You might have a book at home about Dinosaur facts or you might want to search for it on the internet.  Which one was the biggest?  Which one was the smallest?  Which one was the fiercest?  Which one was the meekest?  Go, go, go Nursery Paleontologists!
