Dinosaurs Inspire Creative Writing with Year 2 – Thank You Letters

Children in classes 2P and 2T (Key Stage 1), at Great Wood Primary School (Morecambe), really enjoyed their dinosaur workshops with Everything Dinosaur, we were sent some super thank you letters.  Even the interruption caused by the fire alarm going off did not spoil the day.  Year 2 pupils have been learning all about dinosaurs and prehistoric animals as part of a term topic called the “Jurassic Forest”.  Everything Dinosaur was invited into the school to conduct a workshop to help inspire and motivate the budding young palaeontologists.

One of the teaching aims was to act as a provocation to help enthuse the children (and teachers), as they began this topic.  The dinosaur expert who visited the school suggested a number of extension activities including writing thank you letters to Everything Dinosaur after the workshops had been concluded.

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur commented:

“We try to cater for the learning objectives required by the teaching team and build them into our dinosaur and fossil workshops.  For example, one of the aims of this workshop was to help inspire the children with composition writing.  All the wonderful letters we received provides evidence as to how successful this was.”

The very tactile and practical dinosaur workshop appealed to visual/spatial learners and certainly inspired the children with their writing.  We received lots of letters, some of the children even sent in two pieces of writing!
