Five Star Feedback from Teachers

Everything Dinosaur Workshops in Schools Receive Top Marks

September has started with a bang for team members at Everything Dinosaur.  Team members have been out on four consecutive days delivering dinosaur and fossil themed workshops in schools.  Although the Autumn Term has only just begun, it seems that lots of schools around England and Wales have kicked things off with a term topic all about prehistoric animals and fossils.  Our teaching team have worked with Reception classes, Year 1, Year 2 and delivered a workshop on adaptation and inheritance in support of the national science curriculum aimed at Year 6.  It seems we are going to have a very busy academic year.

In addition to the work already carried out, our staff have been busy preparing for October’s school visits and arranging bookings for the Spring Term.  It is pleasing to note that despite our very busy schedule our high teaching standards are being maintained and we are receiving lots of lovely five star feedback from teachers and teaching assistants.

The picture above shows genuine feedback after one of our dinosaur workshops with Key Stage 2 children at a school in the East Midlands.  The company is currently averaging five stars out of five for its dinosaur workshops in schools.

Moreover, our knowledgeable dinosaur experts are able to help teachers by providing lots of ideas for extensions and other activities in support of the scheme of work.  For example, in the last few days we have supplied information on a Theropod dinosaur called Tarascosaurus to a teacher called Tara (the children loved learning about the dinosaur that had a similar name to their teacher).  Young Avie (Year 1) wanted to know all about Gorgosaurus, good job we had some pictures of Gorgosaurus fossils in our extensive photo archive and we delighted him with a download of some Gorgosaurus drawing materials.

We are expecting to receive our first batch of thank you letters and questions from school children in the next few days, all part of extension activities agreed with teachers to help encourage pupils to practice their writing, sentence composition and so forth.  Our team members read all the letters that we receive and we do our best to email over answers to questions submitted. We also strive to blog about our work with schools helping to support the teaching team with the ICT (information communication and technology) part of the new curriculum.

Time to check the fossils and other items we have prepared in readiness for teaching assignments planned for next week.
