Dinosaurs Inspire Handwriting

Following a dinosaur workshop with Lower Key Stage 1 children at a Nottinghamshire school, Everything Dinosaur’s fossil expert was asked to provide some extension ideas to help the teaching team keep the children motivated when it came to their writing.  Our expert suggested a number of activities and once back in the office, further supplementary resources and other support materials were emailed over to assist the teachers and the teaching assistants with their dinosaur themed term topic.

Thank You Letters

One of our suggested extension activities was to challenge the children to write us a thank you letter.  Could they include a statement in their letter telling us about their favourite part of the dinosaur workshop?  Could they use capitals and punctuation?  We received some really well crafted and well written thank you letters, a most impressive effort.  Well done to all.

Team members at Everything Dinosaur enjoyed reading all the thank you letters.  It was a case of dinosaurs inspire handwriting as a result of the dinosaur themed workshop at the school.
