Learning Fun With Dinosaurs!


Here at Leigh’s we are always implementing the 7 areas of learning and supporting education through exciting, new activities that follow the children’s interests.
This week the children are crazy about dinosaurs so we have created a whole area all about them! The children were super excited to see it and quick to start exploring together. We set up all of the activities and resources so that they were easy for all of the children to access, inviting them to play and use their imagination while learning.
The children showcased curiosity about the numbers, shapes and letters out on display, telling staff the ones they recognised while also talking about and asking questions on any new ones. They initiated counting the dinosaurs and talking about the different colours/sizes they could see. They also shared their own dinosaur knowledge and facts with eachother and acted out their own scenarios using the different props and resources. One of their favourite activities was looking for dinosaur bones. This was great for practicing using tools and strengthening our fine motor skills.
Lots of love,
Leigh and the team xxx
