Home challenge 1-  We’re Going on a Dinosaur Hunt!

Create your own dinosaur story- instead of a bear hunt- go on a dinosaur hunt! What do you have to pass through? Do you make it home? 

There are some ideas below of how to record your ideas. Be as creative as you like and please send us photographs or videos of your amazing work!


Reception/ Nursery - You could draw pictures in your home learning book of all the things you have to pass through. Then write a sentence for each picture to tell your story. 


You could create a story map of your dinosaur hunt. Can you label the pictures?

To help retell the story you could create a small world using different materials and toys.

You could even work outside and build all the things you come across in your new story.

We can’t wait to see your ideas for your new story “We’re Going on a Dinosaur hunt!’
