FS2, Year 1 and Year 2 Learn About Dinosaurs and Fossils

Everything Dinosaur took over the hall at Hadfield Infant School today as they delivered a set of dinosaur themed workshops aimed at Foundation Stage 2 and Lower Key Stage 1 children.  The workshops were very visual and tactile and involved lots of physical activities as well as fossil handling.  The back drop to the dinosaur workshop was very appropriate as the children had been working on a previous term topic all about the human body and there were lots of drawings and artwork of “funny bones” posted up onto one of the walls.

It was certainly an exciting day for the children, the teachers enjoyed themselves too.

One EYFS teacher stated that the “children loved looking at the fossils”, whilst another described the dinosaur workshops conducted by Everything Dinosaur as “a great start to our dinosaur topic”.

Commenting on the day of prehistoric animal fossil themed activities, the dinosaur expert from Everything Dinosaur stated:

“We wanted the sessions to act as a provocation to enthuse the children and help to inspire the teaching team.  A number of exciting extension activities have already come out of the workshops and we will be emailing over more resources tomorrow to help the teachers with this term topic.”
