'Discover Dinosaurs' is a unique, factual and fun half day workshop that can be run as a morning or afternoon session, lasting approximately 2 hours 30 minutes. It can also be run as a full day booking when combined with our half day 'Awesome Animals' workshop, which also lasts 2 hours 30 minutes with a lunch break between the two sessions. Both workshops include meeting different members of our animal team!
Our half and full day workshops are great for school enrichment days or reward sessions and are also fantastic for holiday clubs and activity groups. 'Discover Dinosaurs' also fits in with the national curriculum dinosaur topic. Our half day workshops can be altered to suit different session lengths and budgets, please email or phone us with your requirements and for a quote. Teaching Talons provides all equipment and materials and with at least two of our experienced presenters running the workshops you can sit back and relax whilst we teach and entertain the children!

"We would recommend highly Teaching Talons for a fun, engaging and informative Dinosaur Workshop. Our Year 3s loved handling the fossils and other amazing artefacts and were thrilled at being allowed to touch cockroaches, snails, tortoises and a bearded dragon."

"Year 2 had a wonderful learning experience when Teaching Talons came to visit. We learnt how dinosurs became extinct and saw a wide range of fossils. After, we created fossil rubbings and made our own dionsaurs out of paper plates. We also met a wide range of animals including a large frog and owl. We were delighted with the learning the children showed."
