Abbey Hey Primary Academy Children Study Dinosaurs

Children in Year 1 at Abbey Hey Primary Academy have been learning all about prehistoric animals and fossils as part of an exciting summer term topic with a dinosaur theme.  The three classes had a visit from one of Everything Dinosaur’s experts this week and a series of dinosaur themed workshops were conducted.

The teachers had created an interesting and varied scheme of work and our dinosaur workshop helped to reinforce learning and check understanding, as well as providing the teaching team with the opportunity to pick the brains of a dinosaur expert so that some new ideas can be incorporated into the term topic.

Tyrannosaurus rex and Stegosaurus

The children had focused on two dinosaurs, the fearsome Tyrannosaurus rex and the Jurassic herbivore Stegosaurus.  They were keen to share their newly acquired knowledge.  Lots of pictures of our dinosaur workshops were posted up on the school’s website, a spokesperson for the school stated:

Everything Dinosaur stocks a wide variety of Stegosaurus and Tyrannosaurus rex models and figures. To see the range of dinosaur and prehistoric animal replicas in stock: Dinosaur Models and Prehistoric Animal Figures.

“Today, Year 1 had a visit from Everything Dinosaur.  They were shown dinosaur fossils dating back over 150 million years.  The children thoroughly enjoyed the day and they learnt so much more about dinosaurs.”
