Felsted Prep School Welcomes A Prehistoric Guest
The Essex school was paid a visit by a huge T-Rex to learn about dinosaurs
Felsted Prep School Year 1 pupils welcomed an unlikely guest to their assembly - a Tyrannosaurus Rex! The initiative, led by Teach Rex, gave the children the opportunity to interact with Jam the educational dinosaur, as well to as take part in a whole range of dinosaur-themed workshops and activities.
To kick start their dinosaur topic, the young Felstedians were treated to an assembly packed full of dinosaur and fossil facts, helping them to think scientifically about the pre-historic animals and the time they roamed the earth.
They were able to directly interact with Jam the dinosaur, allowing them to experience the scale of the Jurassic world.
Following their meeting with Jam, the Year 1 pupils at Felsted Prep School, in Dunmow, took part in individual class workshops with the Teach Rex crew which focused on developing their vocabulary and improving their knowledge of connectives, all whilst imaginatively describing the dinosaur.
They were also given the opportunity to finesse their acting skills during a green screen workshop. The children performed in front of the screen which was then added into a jungle background accompanied by the dinosaur. If the makers of the new Jurassic World film are looking for extras, look no further than Felsted Prep School!
