Children at Windmill Primary School in Wokingham had a close encounter of
the Jurassic kind on December 11th when the Dinosaur Dome travelling
exhibition visited the school.
Pupils from Ladybird and Butterfly classes were joined by children from
nearby Wheatfield Primary School as they travelled back in time on a
fascinating journey of discovery and adventure – all without having to leave
their own school grounds.
The Dome’s expert staff taught children about how prehistoric beasts lived
and survived in the prehistoric era, and also some theories about what
caused the ultimate downfall. The children were then given a rare
opportunity to get their hands on some fossils and ancient relics, as well
as studying models of dinosaurs.
After their journey through time, the children were then brought back to the
present day with a picnic lunch, followed by an afternoon watching the
popular animated film Ice Age – with popcorn as a treat.
“Having the Dinosaur Dome come to us here at Windmill Primary has been a
fantastic opportunity for the children,” said executive head teacher Bev
Homer. “The topics of dinosaurs and prehistoric times seem to have an
endless fascination for young children, so to have experts on the subject
come into the school and share their knowledge with the pupils has been
wonderful. They were so excited at the prospect of the visit, and were
absolutely fascinated by what they were told."
