Our Dinosaur English Theme

In English this term our theme was Dinosaurs. Miss Tyler-Smith is our English Teacher.
In each theme we hand in a written task, do an oral report on our written task, complete a comprehension, a listening activity and read our found poems. All of this work goes in our "English Theme Book"
