Five Stars for Everything Dinosaur (sort of)
At Everything Dinosaur we encourage teachers to provide our team members with feedback over our visits to schools to teach about dinosaurs. We conduct dinosaur and fossil workshops from children within the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stages) right up to students at Key Stage 4. We are keen to develop our work in schools and museums and we are very grateful for all the feedback that we receive. Whilst it would be great if teachers could leave feedback and comments on our dedicated teaching website, we do have a section dedicated to this, we do appreciate that sometimes teaching professionals find themselves so busy that this is not always possible.

To help overcome this we always carry feedback forms with us when we visit schools, colleges and other institutions. Being able to provide instant feedback is a great benefit to the teachers, teaching assistants and learning support team members that we work with.
Following our visit to Kensington Primary School to work with Foundation Stage children, we got lots of very positive feedback from the teaching team. This feedback has already been posted up on our dedicated teaching website, but we thought it would be helpful if we posted up one of the forms from a class teacher here.
Foundation Stage Teacher Praises Everything Dinosaur

We note that our “star rating” system was perhaps a little confusing but the comments are greatly appreciated.
The Foundation Stage teacher commented:
“Excellent resources and modelling of different vocabulary, especially focusing on opposites eg. hard/soft. Children remained engaged throughout and loved touching the objects. They were the focus of a lot of discussion throughout the rest of the day.”
Our dinosaur expert talked through a couple of extension activities with the teaching team and we look forward to hearing how the term topic develops.
