A Dinosaur Museum in the Classroom
The Key Stage 1 pupils at All Saints’ C of E Primary have started to learn all about dinosaurs and prehistoric animals this term. A dinosaur workshop delivered by Everything Dinosaur provided a provocation for the children and teachers alike. The children spent the morning handling lots of fossils and exploring the size and scale of dinosaurs.

We set the Year 1 and Year 2 children a number of extension activities to help support the teacher’s scheme of work and although the children have only just started the term topic, there were numerous examples of dinosaur themed writing on display around the well organised classrooms.
Class One (ages 5-6) had set up a mini dinosaur museum in one corner of their classroom. This area will be used to showcase some of the children’s prehistoric animal themed arts and crafts. Some of the children presented our dinosaur expert with dinosaur drawings that they had done and in return we promised to email over fact sheets and drawing materials to help support the learning.

Commenting on the success of the morning of dinosaur themed activities, the Year 1 class teacher stated:
“The children were engaged with the session and we loved all the hands on stuff!”
We look forward to hearing how the budding young scientists tackled the extension activities we provided.
