St Joseph and St Bede R.C. Primary make Dinosaur Video
Year 2 under the supervision of their enthusiastic teachers made a comic strip and video presentation after a visit by Everything Dinosaur. Our team members had conducted a dinosaur workshop with the class back in September and as part of a planned extension activity we had pretended to leave a clutch of dinosaur eggs behind for the schoolchildren to discover and then look after.
The children asked if they could look after the eggs and we agreed. However, disaster has struck, one of the eggs has hatched and a baby dinosaur has escaped.
St Joseph and St Bede Primary School Children Make a Video

We think the baby dinosaur is going to be all right. It was spotted on the school’s CCTV climbing out of a window and heading off out of the school gates to start a “dinosaur adventure”. We provide lots of extension activities and support to schools when we conduct dinosaur and fossil workshops in schools. One of the suggestions we have made, is for the dinosaur to be pictured (photoshop comes in very handy), at a number of famous landmarks. The “Cretaceous critter” can then send the class postcards and emails all about where it has been and what it has done. The children can plot the dinosaur’s travels on a map (great for helping with geography lessons). They can also write back to the dinosaur, which in itself is a great lesson plan for a creative writing session.

Congratulations to the school children and the teaching team for making such a super video.
Everything Dinosaur team members used a soft toy dinosaur to help develop this lesson plan, to view the range of dinosaur soft toys available at Everything Dinosaur: Dinosaur Soft Toys.
