EYFS Children Learn All About Dinosaurs

It looks like it is going to be a very busy month for the teaching team at Everything Dinosaur.  This morning for example, our staff were at St Elizabeth’s Primary School working with Foundation Stage children conducting a series of dinosaur themed workshops.  The children had been studying dinosaurs and thanks to some helpful, free teaching resources from Everything Dinosaur the children had built their very own dinosaur museum in the classroom.

The children enjoyed the dinosaur workshop and then we were treated to a conducted tour of their dinosaur museum.   We saw examples of the posters the children had created along with some wonderful clay models and other artworks.  More capable learners had constructed a clock to show the opening and closing times of their museum, so great signs of independent learning.

The class enjoyed the practical fossil handling session and they were very happy to discuss facts about prehistoric animals and to explain the differences between omnivores, herbivores and carnivores.

Setting up a dinosaur museum as part of a term topic is very easy to do, Everything Dinosaur supplies some free downloads and plenty of advice on activities that can be undertaken by this age group.  It certainly has proved to be an inspiring term topic at St Elizabeth’s Primary, our congratulations to all the teaching staff.
