Exploring Dinosaurs with Andy from CBeebies


Watch a new episode of Andy's Dinosaur Adventure everyday.

Harry and the Bucketful of Dinosaurs by Ian Whybrow


Listen to the story Harry and the Bucketful of Dinosaurs. In the story Harry finds some dinosaurs 🦖🦕 and decides to put them in his bucket. 

We are going to imagine what we could put inside our own buckets! What are your favourite things you would love to put in your imagination bucket ? Have you got a favourite place you like to go which you can see inside your bucket? What is happening in your bucket? Can you see any animals in your bucket? Are there any people in your bucket? If there is what are they doing? Have a go at drawing what’s in your bucket. In the home learning pack you will find a template of a bucket for drawing on. You could add labels to your pictures. Let’s name our buckets! For example I love fairground rides so I could call my bucket “Mrs Sykes and the bucketful of fairground rides”. We can’t wait to see what you would put inside your imagination bucket!! You could show your friends and your teachers at our online show and tell session on Fridays! 



🦖Can you use different materials to design and make your favourite dinosaur?
🦕What is your dinosaur called?

🦖Do they have plates, spikes, horns or razor sharp teeth? 

  • Can you move around like a dinosaur? Play some music and stomp around. Think about how dinosaurs would sound.
  • As Harry’s dinosaurs get bigger, the bucket that they live in will become too small.  They’ll need somewhere else to live. Can you create a new home for the dinosaurs? Perhaps use junk to bring your dinosaur home to life.
  • Can you design your own dinosaur? What would it have? Legs? Feathers? Wings? A tail? Scales? Claws? Teeth? Label this if you want to.
  • Can you make a paper plate dinosaur? Would it have spikes? A tail? What colour would it be? Can you cut it out yourself? You can use anything you have at home to decorate and join together. Paint, coloured pens or pencils or even collage.

This week you have a dinosaur 🦖 activity challenge! Can you practise moving like different dinosaurs? You can click on the picture below to take you to a website to print the activity cards. 


Lets practise stomping like a T-Rex, flapping your wings like a Pterodactyl, moving slowly and heavily like a ankylosaurus. Have a look at the activity cards for more ideas of how to move around like different dinosaurs! 


This week you have been set some 2dos to complete some dinosaur pictures. There are three different dinosaur pictures for you to choose from including a T-Rex, a Stegosaurus and a Pterodactyl. There is also a Phonics game you can have a go at to practise making some words using some of the sounds we have learnt in our phonics. Can you have a go at making some words using the following sounds, s,a,t,p,i,n?
