Jurassic park was brought to life at St Andrew’s Infant School, Brighouse, as they stepped into the world of dinosaurs.

The week started with a mysterious egg appearing in the playground with pupils beginning their investigation of how it got there and what had laid it.

From then on, the school has been going dino-crazy, with a variety of class activities and projects.

Head teacher Naomi Wood said: “Everyone has really enjoyed the week. We have been reading about dinosaurs, learning about dinosaurs, making dinosaurs, dancing the dinosaur and writing about dinosaurs.”

Pupils got the chance to excavate sand pits in schools to discover prehistoric bones and fossils.

They were also treated to a special visit from local author Tim Beaumont who spent the day at the school running workshops and reading extracts from his book ‘Dino Express’.

The grand finale of the week, which also tied in with World Book Day celebrations saw children from each class present their findings from the week at family worship.

They then tucked into a mammoth meal with turkey dinosaurs for lunch accompanied by vegetable dino teeth, hoops and waffles.
