Introducing the Deinosoriaid
As part of Everything Dinosaur’s teaching activities, we get the opportunity to travel the length and breadth of the country delivering Earth Science related workshops to school children. We also provide support to teachers outside of the UK via emails and such like. One of the pleasures of doing such work is we get to see the amazing dinosaur themed projects that the children get involved with.
In a recent trip to North Wales (Gwynedd) we worked with Year 5 and Year 6 pupils who had just started a dinosaur themed topic for the term.
Dinosaurs in Different Languages

It was fascinating to see the project work that the budding young palaeontologists had undertaken and intriguing to see a dinosaur topic delivered in the Welsh language. The picture above shows part of the children’s wall display with the word “dinosaurs” written in Welsh. The dinosaur workshops in school activities that team members undertake are popular in Wales as well as England.
We come across the phrase “dinosaures”, “los dinosaurios”, “dinosaurier” – French, Spanish, Germany but we have not come across this phrase translated into Welsh – cool.
