John Locke Academy Learn All About Dinosaurs

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) at John Locke Academy have been studying dinosaurs and learning all about prehistoric animals.  The term topic entitled “Stomp, Stomp Roar” has certainly encouraged the children with writing and vocabulary development as well as helping them to learn about the wider world.  As part of their topic, a dinosaur expert from Everything Dinosaur was invited in to deliver a dinosaur workshop to Foundation Stage.  The enthusiastic, young palaeontologists certainly enjoyed handling the fossils and learning all about how the armoured Ankylosaurus kept safe and how Triceratops used its horns.

Our dinosaur expert even spotted some dinosaur shaped mirrors outside one of the spacious Nursery classes.

Part of a Reception class had been turned into a dinosaur museum.  It contained lots of excellent examples of the children’s work including books all about prehistoric animals that the children had produced.

The Everything Dinosaur expert who visited the school was most impressed with the level of knowledge the children demonstrated.  Commenting on the dinosaur workshops delivered by Everything Dinosaur, one of the teachers stated that they were “Greatosaurus!”
