Shared learning and teaching
- Read the title and encourage the children to make suggestions about the kinds of things that could happen in a dinosaur’s day.
- Lead the children in reading the text. Initially, let them join in with the parts they feel confident with.
- Before clicking the icon to show the animation, ask for predictions about what could happen next. Rather than asking for ‘hands up’, perhaps they could tell a partner, draw a picture or do thumbs up or down to indicate agreement or disagreement with a suggestion. As the story develops, compare what is happening with the predictions made.
