Children try out being palaeontologists during a ROAR-some week; pupils took part in a dinosaur workshop and visited West Midlands Safari Park



Year 1 children had a ROAR-some week, taking part in a dinosaur workshop and visiting West Midlands Safari Park.  During the workshop, the children gave being palaeontologists a go as they dug for fossils, identified preserved specimens, and assembled bones.  Later in the week they had a field trip to the West Midlands Safari Park, where they learned all about different dinosaurs through time.  The children went on a journey through the Land of the Living Dinosaurs and heard about how the how the carnivores and herbivores fought to survive on earth over 65 million years ago.

“The Year 1 children thoroughly enjoyed learning about dinosaurs this week and it was great to get them out and about and learning outside the classroom at the West Midlands Safari Park.”
