Year 1 at Forden Church in Wales School Send Letters
The children in Year 1 at Forden Church in Wales School have been studying dinosaurs and prehistoric animals this term. The young scientists have been learning all about fossils and life in the past. A team member from Everything Dinosaur visited the school for a morning last month to show the children fossils and to teach them about dinosaurs. Our fossil expert challenged the children in Year 1 to write letters to Everything Dinosaur and sure enough, yesterday, we received a lovely set of dinosaur themed letters from the children.

Mrs Davies, the enthusiastic teacher, explained that her class had written thank you letters after the fabulous morning of workshops with Everything Dinosaur. Year 1 have been learning how to take photographs on the iPad and import them into a different document, the children have also been showing off their typing skills too.

William now knows that Spinosaurus was bigger than Tyrannosaurus rex. Hollie was amazed by all the fossils and she enjoyed playing the games.

Hollie chose to illustrate her thank you letter to Everything Dinosaur using a model of a Pteranodon (flying reptile). Jodie was amazed by all the fossils and she now knows that when you touch a fossil it feels cold! Jodie also chose to illustrate her letter with a Pteranodon. Jessica on the other hand, selected a wonderful model of a duck-billed dinosaur, a big plant-eater called Parasaurolophus for her letter. She liked having her picture taken with the fossils.

A special thank you to the teachers and staff at Forden Church in Wales School, for assisting the Year 1 children in their letter writing extension activity.
