Years two and three students at Manakau School give a huge Thumbs Down to the Dino Experience Company, booked to take their life size interactive robotic T Rex dinosaur to the school and didn’t arrive! Just as they were scheduled to arrive at Manakau School Horowhenua, they sent an email to say “sorry we went to MANUKAU School (in Auckland)”!!
The Manakau kids had been very busy, they had built their own dinosaur from recycled parts and painted it and each classroom had their own dinosaur activity. The year two and three children have made papier mache dinosaur eggs, complete with “hatching” baby dinosaurs coming out of the egg. They will be out, up and gone before Dino Experience gets to Manakau later in the year!
The first term theme is How change effects living things and the dinosaurs were part of their studies.
