Louise Norwood, Head of The Oval Montessori Nursery –
“Teaching young children how to match, classify, sort and measure is an important part of developing an understanding of early maths because these skills help children identify and describe relationships between items. The Dinosaur Bones and Cards are perfect for this. The activities you can do with the bones are limitless as you can use them to teach all the above in an infinite number of ways.”

Practical Pre-School Awards Tester –
“A fabulous resource that engaged the children from the moment it arrived and stimulated both their mathematical and comparative language. From the beginning we have treated the bones as real and the children have handled them with care. We have covered so many areas of the EYFS, comparing height/length, digging and dusting for them in the sand tray, using dinosaur toys and talking about where the bones may have come from. The activity cards and activity ideas sheet were also very useful on how the bones could be used. A great resource, beautifully made and one we will use time and time again.”
