Dinosaurs Help with Writing and Phonics

Class 5 at Springbrook Primary School in Lancashire were visited by Everything Dinosaur as the children had been studying dinosaurs and fossils with their teacher Miss Foxcroft.  We looked at how big some dinosaurs were and examined the rib bones from a dinosaur and compared them to our own ribs.  Kyle, Abu and Ethan helped make a cast of a dinosaur fossil which could be put on display in the classroom along with all the other fact sheets, posters and examples of creative writing that the children had produced.  Luke and Liam enjoyed learning all about Tyrannosaurus rex and the keen dinosaur fans had even made a model of this famous Late Cretaceous dinosaur.

“Class 5 are learning all about dinosaurs this term and they are very excited by this.  The children are working hard to develop their reading skills and they are making great progress with their phonics.”
