Year 1 Student Explains About Flying Reptiles
Young Brandon was keen to show our dinosaur expert the model of a flying reptile that he had made. The children in Year 1 are currently studying prehistoric animals as part of their spring term curriculum. The flying reptiles seem to be particularly popular. Brandon had made a model of a Pterosaur which he showed the Everything Dinosaur fossil expert who came to visit the school to deliver a dinosaur themed workshop as part of a plan to encourage the children with their writing.

Brandon showed our expert the wings and explained about flying reptiles. He even pointed out the yellow fish in the beak, as Brandon thought that most Pterosaurs ate fish. We set the class one of our “pinkie palaeontologist challenges” could they design a poster all about a flying reptile called Pteranodon. We sent over fact sheets and a scale drawing to help them, although we insisted that they write some facts on the poster and label it correctly. All part of encouraging their writing.
