Feedback from Reception Class
A topic about dinosaurs and prehistoric animals can be a great way to help children in the autumn term of Reception move from learning through play to a more diverse range of activities aimed at developing learning skills and meeting individual learning needs. Children in the Reception classes at Kensington Primary School had been learning all about dinosaurs and a visit from one of Everything Dinosaur’s experts to show them fossils proved to be the highlight of their week.
The focus on this very tactile session, was very much on helping to develop vocabulary and confidence in handling unusual objects. The children were able to make comparisons and use describing words. There was lots of activities incorporated into the fast paced session and the children (plus the teaching team), really enjoyed helping our dinosaur expert answer the question of the day – “how big were dinosaurs?”

Whilst we appreciate our star rating system might need a little clarification we were happy to help out at the school and our “5 star” rating was greatly appreciated.

As part of our support for the school, Everything Dinosaur pretended to have left some dinosaur eggs for the children to discover. Pictures of the eggs along with some describing words were then posted up on the classroom “Wow wall” to help reinforce the learning.
The dinosaur workshop for the reception class really helped the teaching team animate and bring to life the dinosaur themed term topic.
