Reception Children at Leigh Primary School Study Dinosaurs

Children in classes FS2 and FS3 had an exciting afternoon learning all about different types of dinosaur.  The wet weather outside did not dampen their spirits as these children aged between four and five years old moved like dinosaurs and handled lots of fossils.  The budding young explorers learned about fossils and how they formed.  Real fossils feel as cold as a stone!

One of the teachers emailed on behalf of the children and the rest of the hard-working and dedicated teaching staff at the school, she said:

“Thank you for visiting Reception yesterday.  We had lots of fun learning about dinosaurs.  We think you are very clever and you know lots about dinosaurs.  Fletcher enjoyed learning about T. rex.  Miller enjoyed holding the fossil and showing his friends.  Heidi thought it was cool holding the dinosaur’s head.  We couldn’t believe that a dinosaur’s brain was so small.  Thank you for showing us the model of the dinosaur.  We loved being dinosaurs and showing our teeth and dinosaur fingers.  We liked roaring like a dinosaur and Mrs Thomas [class teacher] is going to put our photo on the school website.  I hope we don’t scare the mums and dads! “

Today, the enthusiastic children are going to get busy making dinosaur pictures, which sounds wonderful.  We hope to see some pictures of the children’s creations very soon.

So pleased to hear that the young children enjoyed the school dinosaur workshop, our dinosaur expert certainly enjoyed teaching about dinosaurs in school.
