It’s not every day that you find a dinosaur at school, but on Wednesday 16 October our Y6 boys did just that.
Using their archaeological skills, the budding palaeontologists uncovered and identified fossils from some of the most iconic dinosaurs of the past, including Tyrannosaurus Rex, Stegosaurus and Triceratops. They discovered how these prehistoric creatures lived, where they came from, what they ate and much, much more.
At the end of their fascinating session, the boys not only came face to face with a newly-hatched baby dinosaur but also a life-sized T-Rex called Sophie! The animatronic young Tyrannosaurus Rex popped into the Erskine May Hall to meet the boys, who were advised to “show no fear as she can smell it!” However, our intrepid explorers thought she was more of a pussy cat than a scary lizard despite her realistic roar!
