The unforgettable experience of meeting a T-rex

Pupils in Reception at St George's Junior School came face to face with a prehistoric monster on 8 February as they visited the National History Museum in London.

The boys and girls in Reception at the Junior School have been learning all there is to know about dinosaurs recently in their latest topic. Their studies started with a trip of discovery to the Forest School, where the children discovered a 'dinosaur egg'. This egg was taken back to the classrooms and eventually hatched to reveal a dinosaur. Once hatched, the pupils then took it in turns to look after the young dinosaur and take it home with them each evening.

To create the perfect finale to this topic, the children then visited the National History Museum to learn even more about these intriguing prehistoric beasts. The girls and boys loved seeing all the old dinosaur skeletons and eggs and finding out more about how they lived all those years ago.

However, the best part of the day was undoubtedly the rather scary T-rex that the pupils came face to face with. All of the children were very brave and entered into the room with slight trepidation to experience being with a life sized model of a very large monster that moves and ROARS!

It was an unforgettable day out for all of the children in Reception.
