MTJBS Science Visitor
Our Dinosaur Visit
On Tuesday we were delighted to welcome some very special visitors to the school, which included a small dinosaur and a T Rex called Milly, who was 3 years old.
As they walked into the playground watching us we were all silent, still and could not believe our eyes.
The man told us dinosaurs have over 20 teeth which I now know, are sharp because they kept biting me.
Ben, there owner was like Owen from Jurassic Park, he feeds them, keeps them safe and exercises them. I’m not sure our school can cater for these beasts but it was a great experience anyway.

My Science Day – Dinosaur Visit
On Tuesday 13th June Year 4 took part in a Science workshop. Two scientists visited our school and showed us lots of different things in the Junior Hall, including some dinosaurs!
To start our workshop we were divided into groups of four. My group consisted of Williams Malins, Henry Poole, Christian and of course, me.
The hall had already been set up with six stations all with different puzzles. Each group was given a station and asked to work as a team to solve that particular puzzle.
My group’s first puzzle was building a square using lots of different shapes. We tried hard but were beaten by the clock.
Our next station was very similar but slightly more technical. There were buildings set out and we needed to put them together to make one large square.
Working as a team made us think deeply about things. As a team, it was important to share ideas, listen to each other, try all ideas and compromise.
We did not have a chance to do all stations but I thoroughly enjoyed the stations that I did.
Later in the day we were invited back to see two dinosaurs.
First we met a baby dinosaur called Jack, who kept nipping one of the scientist’s hand. Then we all got to pet Jack. After this Jack was tired and went inside to rest. This is when Milly the T-Rex came out.
Milly was large and vicious and had she bitten us it would have been lethal. The scientist called it the venomous bite. Apparently all the rotten food on their teeth would go into your blood and be so toxic it was poisonous.
It was a very exciting morning and once Milly left we had worked up an appetite. It was lucky for us that we headed straight for lunch!
