Dinosaur Workshops at Newport Infant School

Another busy few days at Everything Dinosaur with a series of school visits to deliver dinosaur and fossil themed workshops.  Our week concluded with a series of workshops with the Key Stage 1 and Reception classes at Newport Infant School (Shropshire).  The whole school is studying dinosaurs over a two-week period and Everything Dinosaur was invited into the school to help kick-start the scheme of work.

As our visit came to an end, we were presented with a set of dinosaur and prehistoric animal drawings that had been produced by one of the classes that we had worked with.

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“We try to set lots of cross-curricular extension activities when working with children in Foundation Stage 2 and Key Stage 1.  This helps to support the lesson plans that have been devised by the teaching team.  We challenged the children to draw a dinosaur and to label body parts using some of the new terms that we had introduced to the class during our workshop.  It is always a pleasure to receive such wonderful drawings and the writing element of this exercise helps the children to develop important motor skills.”
