Like so many words Dinosaur derives from the Greek words Deinos and Sauros which translates to Terrible Lizard.
We hope you will find out some more information to share with us.

Our setting is currently involved in an ‘Early Language Project’ with Oxfordshire County Council.
In nursery we make careful observations and records of all the children’s progress in all areas of learning in the Early Years Foundation Stage. As part of this project we will be sharing information about progress in Communication and Language and Literacy(Reading) for a small group of children with Oxfordshire County Council(parents of children chosen have been informed).
This project will enable our team to receive additional training around ways to support children’s early speech, language and communication development. We will also receive a sum of money to spend on some new resources that will further enhance our environment. We can choose how we spend this and will let you know what we bought!
If you have any questions please come and talk to us in the Nursery.
Happy New Year. Our term starts at 8:45am on Thursday 4th January 2018. We look forward to welcoming you all back, as we also welcome some new friends into Barn Owls. This term we will be learning about Winter, as we explore the weather and our surroundings.
