THE children at Chester Park Infant School had a roaring time during their dinosaur-themed literacy week to end the academic year.

They kicked off the week with a dinosaur workshop, where the children not only got to look at dinosaur fossils they even got to see the tooth of a T-Rex. It's the same size as a banana! 

They got to meet Spiny the animatronic dinosaur.  He moved around the hall and the children were brave and stroked him under the chin. This really got them fired up for a week of creative activities.  They made a range of paintings, costumes and masks.  The children used all of this amazing inspiration to write some truly dinosaurtastic poems.  Paul Stickland, author of Dinosaur Roar, came to school to share his book with the children  and the week ended with a performance of Dinosaur Roar for parents and carers.
