Primary school pupils had a prehistoric adventure last week when they took part in their own dinosaur dig.

Children in Year 1 at Deeping St James Primary School spent a day in the school field looking for dinosaur bones. They had a successful dig, finding several excellent specimens, which they then took back to the classroom to examine.

The class then wrote a report on their adventure. They said: “The dinosaur was sneaky. Mr Wilkinson heard him roar, he was thumping around our school.

“We found a dinosaur bone; it was scary. We found footprints. The footprint were big.

“We think they were dinosaur prints. We think it came from a Triceratops.

“We have discovered Triceratops bones and a horn, and we also found teeth.

“Please come to Deeping St James Primary School to see the bones we have found. We found them on the field, in the woods.”

The children thoroughly enjoyed their prehistoric week.
