Dinosaur day at Spalding school is a roaring success

Four dinosaurs visited Spalding Parish Church of England Day School for a day of Jurassic fun and learning.

Foundation Stage and Year 1 pupils met baby dino Trixie, Ronnie, the four-metre-long T-rex and Spike the Spinosaurus, pictured above with staff.

Class teacher Laura McWilliam, who organised the visit, said: “We wanted a fun and educational workshop to support our children’s learning during our first topic of dinosaurs and certainly got that from this outstanding workshop.

“The Foundation Stage children were totally engaged throughout the workshop and learnt so much.

“Our Year 1 children loved watching the dinosaurs and learned lots about their diet and how they were adapted to live in their environments.”

The dinosaurs came from Swansea company Dino4Hire, whose Ranger Chris and Ranger David led the proceedings in the hall.

The school said it hopes the dinosaurs will be back next year.
