The Dirty Great Dinosaur

Robins have been back to prehistoric times to find out about dinosaurs. We read Martin Waddell’s story ‘The Dirty Great Dinosaur’ in which Hal and his dog Billy capture a dinosaur in their garden, the children designed their own imaginative traps in case a dinosaur ever visits them! As the poor dinosaur didn’t get to eat Hal or his family he was still hungry, so Mum feeds him a huge dinner. Robins drew and wrote captions for their own dino dinners including spaghetti and meatballs, seafood omelette and a cheese, chips and chocolate wrap! As well as finding out some interesting dinosaur facts the children designed their own hand-print dinosaurs, made pasta dinosaur skeletons and salt dough dinosaur bones.
