Last Friday the Art Department and the English Department joined forces once again and presented to the school community the traditional “Dinosaur Museum”.
Giant prehistorical creatures were made from papier machè, glued with masking tape and coloured according to what scientist have established that those dinosaurs looked like.
Apathosaurus, triceratops, pterodactyls and the ever infamous tyrannosaurus rex adorned the school’s gym for a couple of hours, resting on landscapes created by students, parents or whoever wanted to chip in to the project.
Parents, grandparents, siblings, students from other classes and teachers visit the exposition and were amazed how much work The students had invested in this project.
“Unforgettable”, “amazing”, “lots of fun” were concepts the students kept repeating about their experience in all of this. They really loved explaining to others, specially to other parents, or even better, to virtual strangers, what they learnt during the process of investigation they conducted in class. And obviously everything in English!
We even had volcanic explosions in the gym!
All in all, this year’s Dinosaur Museum was a tremendous success! Congratulations to all participants, creators, helpers and teachers who made possible such a great event come out on top once again!
