Prehistoric Fiction: Tiny-rannosaurus

Our after school English club at Barcola started marvellously yesterday.  The fourth and fifth classes began their ‘Curiosity English’ course with a reading of ‘Tiny-rannosaurs’ by Nick Ward.

It was a great a read and the kids really enjoyed it. While reading the book on the interactive board, we used adhesive word labels to identify certain characters and features.

We then started exploring the story and its words a little deeper with the aid  of a few book inspired worksheets that I had created for the occasion.  We finished off our time with the children working in teams to spell Tiny-rannosaurus words with letter tiles.

There will be more Tiny-rannosaurus exploration next week, as well as starting a project looking at real prehistoric life.

    Excuse me: what is this after school English club in Barcola that started yesterday? Is it possible to join it and when the lessons are held?

    Thank you

    • Hi Tanja, that particular club is at Barcola’s primary school and is restricted to its pupils. I am also beginning a similar one in Santa Croce next week for their school, and then for a primary school in San Giovani and for a group of parents in Prebeneg. I am open to the idea of creating another club elsewhere, email me so we can talk further.🙂
