Early Years Learn All About Dinosaurs

When a team member from Everything Dinosaur visited a Yorkshire school, he got the chance to work with the teaching team over at the nursery. The enthusiastic nursery children loved showing our dinosaur expert their drawings and talking about their favourite dinosaur.  In return, we conducted a short workshop with the class all about how dinosaurs moved and what fossils feel like.  The children and the teaching team were so inspired by what they had done, that in the afternoon the children went into the playground and built their own dinosaur.

We had been working with Year 2 and Year 3 children but we were delighted to assist the EYFS teaching team and we were happy to provide lots of exciting extension activities and ideas for them to use with the nursery children.  The dinosaur topic worked well and it was great to see the sensory play area turned into a dinosaur theme park for the day.
