College Town Infant and Nursery School Children Write About Dinosaurs
To help inspire children in Year 1 at College Town Infant and Nursery School, the teaching team invited a team member from Everything Dinosaur to conduct dinosaur themed workshops as part of a term topic. The children were certainly very excited to receive a visit in support of their term topic (dinosaurs). However, one of the learning objectives was to help enthuse and motivate the children with their writing. As part of an agreed set of extension activities, one of the teachers (Miss Tuck), asked her class to write thank you letters. Just before leaving, we received a wonderful set of letters from the class.

Our teaching team enjoyed reading all the letters that the children had written. They had obviously absorbed a lot of information in the dinosaur workshop and they were very keen to write a thank you note to our dinosaur expert. The Year 1 class had thought carefully about what they were going to say and there were lots of excellent examples of sounding words out before attempting to spell them. Some fantastic adjectives were used and it was pleasing to hear from the teaching team how enthusiastic the children were when it came to this task.
