Teach Rex - Bringing Your Dinosaur Topic To Life!

This week, we were very lucky to have the team from Teach Rex visit our school. The brought their good friend Jam to see our pupils and led workshops to help us learn about the Tyrannosaurus Rex. Needless to say, our pupils were captivated! To have an actual dinosaur roam our school was amazing!

See the moment Jam appeared to our KS1 pupils here:

To say the pupils enjoyed the experience was an understatement! They didn't stop talking about it all day. For me, Primary School should be about creating incredible experiences that ignite a love for learning and provide memories that last a lifetime. 

What I liked most about the visit from Teach Rex was the fact is was led by teachers. Joey and Sam both work as class teachers and so the experience was all about learning. The children definitely retained some interesting facts about the T-Rex as can be seen in some follow up work we did in class using Apple Clips and ChatterPix Kids. Here, some Year 2 pupils have created an interview with Jam the T-Rex:

If you're doing Dinosaurs as a topic or even if you're not, a visit from the Teach Rex team will be something your pupils will never forget! If you head over to my Facebook page, you could be in with a chance of winning a FREE visit from the team in the first week of June. Check out the post below:
