An Inspiring Dinosaur Day

A day of teaching about dinosaurs and fossils with Foundation Stage pupils as well as Key Stage 1 children and a class of Year 3 at a primary school in Lancashire this week.  The dinosaur workshops that we delivered went down very well with the eager and enthusiastic young palaeontologists.  The teaching team also had a great time too.

Dinosaurs and Fossils

The visitor from Everything Dinosaur was given a tour of the school and at lunchtime, he was able to view some of the amazing dinosaurs the children had designed – all part of an extension activity that he had set them during their workshop.  A special section of the school had been turned into an “Explorers Area”, lots of arts and craft activities were underway and members of the teaching team explained their plans about creating a “Dinosaur Museum” for the duration of the term topic.

Lots of Dinosaur Themed Artwork on Display in the “Explorers Area”

Inspiring Teachers and Teaching Assistants

The staff at the school are dedicated to continuous improvement and life-long learning.  As part of a teacher training initiative, the school administrators had been exploring what it takes to be “world class”.  There were lots of pictures of inspirational people as well several inspiring quotations in the well-appointed and tidy staffroom.

We look forward to hearing more about how the school’s “Dinosaur Museum” develops.  It is bound to prove inspiring for the pupils.
