As part of starting a new topic learning about dinosaurs, headteacher Joanne Davenport said the visit from the prehistoric reptile was an exciting way for kids to learn.

Mrs Davenport said: 'I thought it would excite the children, something to engage their interests.

'The children loved it, they loved the palaeontology bit in the morning learning about fossils and how long dinosaurs lived, and the visit from T Rex finished the afternoon off.

'It was met with both delight and fear, a few of the children needed to be reassured but some of them realised it wasn't real.'
