My Dinosaur Scene

In Year One, we have been learning about dinosaurs! In DT we have created our own dinosaur scenes. Have a look at our projects below. 

In Art we created our own Dinosaur Planet. We used powder paints and mixed the primary colours to make secondary colours for our sunset scenes. We cut out silhouettes of dinosaurs and added them to our pictures.

Our Topic for this half term is: 'Oh I do like to be beside the seaside'
