Our new Early Years class text - Diggersaurs by Michael Whaite - has inspired some brilliant creative work this week. The children are loving the story about the characters who are both dinosaurs and digging machines.
The children have been building diggers and dinosaurs from blocks, meccano, lego and junk modelling. They have been writing letters to the Diggersaurs and writing their own dinosaur names. Here we can see some of them busy at work, designing their own diggersaur characters with their own unique functions.
'Mine has spikes with wings so it can fly'
'Mine has a giant roller to flatten the ground.'
Children from Butterfly class.
Next week we will be carrying on with our Diggersaurs topic so watch this space for more monster machines.
