What an amazing day we shared when 'Sophie' a seven year old t-rex visited Goldfield!
Darren, Ben, Sophie and Baby Jack joined us for an assembly followed by workshops for the reception classes. The children became palaentologists for the day exploring fossils and making discoveries about life long ago. Please scroll down to view a selection of photographs taking during the day along with a short video clip of Sophie.
Look at the difference in the size of a chicken egg and a t-rex egg!
Meet Jack the seven week old t-rex
Did you know that a t-rex will always walk on tip-toe so this fossil of a t-rex foot is not as large as a real t-rex foot!
