GALLERY: Lessons brought to life

Lessons were brought to life when youngsters at a West Norfolk primary school came face to face with two model dinosaurs.

Members of The Education Group visited Greyfriars Academy in King’s Lynn last Friday which made a spectacular end of topic work for pupils aged seven to nine.

The topic up to the Easter break was learning all about dinosaurs.

The youngsters turned into palaeontologists when they hunted for fossils and identified dinosaurs.

The event finished with an assembly for the whole school and the chance for pupils to get up close and personal with Sophie, an adult Tyrannosaurus Rex and also her baby.

Claire Emery, assistant headteacher at the London Road academy, described it as a “fantastic day”.

“It was a fantastic end to an excellent day. 

“We like to give children first-hand experience as much as possible and we certainly did with this one.

“We try to bring learning to life and we are all about  trying to make it as real as possible for the children,” said Mrs Emery.

Pupils were also taking part in a non-uniform day to raise money for the Friends of Greyfriars.
