Dinosaur Workshops with Year 1

Pupils in Year 1 at Heasandford Primary School in Lancashire enjoyed a dinosaur workshop conducted by team members from Everything Dinosaur this week.  The three classes in lower Key Stage 1 have been studying dinosaurs and prehistoric animals this term and a dinosaur workshop provided by Everything Dinosaur was aimed at reinforcing learning and helping the dedicated teaching team to check understanding.  The classrooms were full of prehistoric animal and fossil themed examples of work, including some very colourful poster displays.

The children were keen to demonstrate how much independent learning that they had done.  The dinosaur expert was told lots of facts about dinosaurs such as Apatosaurus and Triceratops and posted up on the walls of the classroom were lots of facts about prehistoric animals.

A spokesperson for the Cheshire based dinosaur company stated:

“Heasandford is one of the largest primary schools in England and this presents the teaching team with a number of challenges.  However, the teachers with the support of the rest of the staff at the school all work together to produce a co-ordinated and cohesive scheme of work that really enthuses and motivates the children.”
