Science Time: Dinosaurs

A boy and girl playing with toy dinosaurs

Dinosaurs looks at some of the most famous dinosaurs, the differences between herbivores and carnivores, and what it means to be extinct. The children will get to look at some dino fossils, and even dig for some 'fossils' of their own!

Please note that this session uses home made play-dough, and so children with severe flour allergies should NOT attend this session.
