Dinosaur Themed Writing Exercise for Reception and Lower Key Stage 1

Here is a simple and creative idea to encourage young children with their handwriting.  When an Everything Dinosaur team member delivered a dinosaur workshop to the Reception class at Egerton Primary School, the teacher requested if the children could write thank you letters to the dinosaur expert who conducted the morning of activities.  We were happy to oblige and to help enthuse the children, large dinosaur footprint drawings were used to create dinosaur notepaper for the budding young palaeontologists.

By carefully punching a hole in the foot, a cord can be passed through the “dinosaur feet” and then a thicker pieces of coloured card can be added to the front and the back to provide the covers for a highly original dinosaur book.  This would be great as part of a literacy and writing themed section of a term topic all about fossils and prehistoric animals.
