Half Term Project Details and Homework Ideas – Dinosaur Planet


Stomp, crash, roar! Watch out – there are dinosaurs about! Yes, that’s right, we’re travelling back in time to the age of the dinosaurs.


This half term, we’ll vlook closely at ancient fossils and study reptiles to understand how dinosaurs may have lived and eventually died out. We’ll learn about the great fossil hunter, Mary Anning, and follow in her footsteps, studying dinosaur teeth and bones to find out what dinosaurs liked to eat. Learning dinosaur names, creating puzzling riddles, writing fantastic fact files and creating exciting dinosaur stories are some of the other activities we’ll be involved in this half term. We’ll also use our artistic skills to make model dinosaurs and to design dinosaur landscapes.


This project runs for the f Second half of the Autumn term. Homework contributions can be made throughout the half term, please make sure your child brings in something that they have worked on at home. 


Below are some ideas for each project, try one of these or something else project related. 

  • Work with grown-ups at home to research more amazing facts about the age of the dinosaurs. 

  • Find non-fiction books at home (or in the local library) about dinosaurs. Bring them into school to share! 

  • Watch birds in your garden or local park. Look at them closely with binoculars. Do you think they walk like dinosaurs? 

  • Work with an adult to produce your own dinosaur movie or show using toys, puppets or models. Evergreen bushes or a rocky or dusty area of your garden or local park would make perfect film sets! 

  • Share stories and poems about dinosaurs with your grown-ups. Take on the role of storyteller for any younger members of your family. 

  • Entertain your family and friends by reading them some side-splitting dinosaur jokes or astounding dinosaur facts! 



  • Use the internet to learn about the miracles Jesus performed. Write about your favourite one. What does it tell Christians about God?  

At the end of the project homework period your child will receive either a bronze, silver or gold project homework badge.

Bronze = a basic piece of project homework was completed

Silver = a good piece of project homework which has clearly taken lots of time to complete

Gold = an excellent piece of project homework which has clearly taken lots of thought, time and effort to complete
