What an amazing day in school today! Why? Well we had the brilliant team from Teach Rex bring Jam the T-Rex to visit! You can imagine the reaction from the children! Best thing about Teach Rex is that the team are teachers so the experience is all about learning!

Thanks again to Joey and Sam from Teach Rex, the students loved it today! An experience like having a dinosaur in school will be something they will remember forever!

An interview with Jam, the T-Rex who visited our school today! Thanks again Teach Rex, as you can see, our pupils learnt a lot from the session!

Stacey – Science Lead

Had an incredible visit from Jam today. As science lead this was the perfect way to finish off our science week. There was awe, wonder and excitement. What a fantastic day. The children were engaged and excited right the way through from EYFS to Year 6. There was a contagious buzz for learning around the school not only for the day but the following week. Where children were immersed in all things dinosaurs. Wanting to write, research and draw their findings! As a teacher and Science Co-ordinator I would thoroughly recommend.

Hayley – Member of staff

Amazing idea! Would love the chance for my children and their schoolmates to see this fantastic dinosaur and learn all the interesting facts about them! Especially as my kids love exploring the Jurassic coast at Lyme Regis when we go on holiday, this would definitely make them even more enthusiastic about our dinosaur history!!

Rach – Member of staff

Had Teach Rex in school today and our children loved it from start to finish! I genuinely can’t recommend them enough. Memory’s made and children buzzing on the way out of school!
Fantastic day!

Angela – Parent

A very happy little boy today after Jam visited his school, absolutely amazing!

Tracey – Member of staff

Amazing to see all the children’s faces light up when Jam stomped into the room Fantastic idea to keep the children’s attention and teach them all about dinosaurs. Loved it

Wow! Jam paid us a visit and the children and the staff were blown away. Sam was great and tailored the session exactly to our children’s needs. A truly memorable experience for all involved.

Feedback from Mrs. Pillow – (Acting Deputy Head, KS1 Lead, English Coordinator) and children

Wow! I would highly recommend a visit from Jam to any school!  Our children were absolutely enthralled by him. He was so much bigger than we imagined! It was an amazing afternoon, where the children learnt lots of new and exciting facts about the T.Rex and came away inspired and so motivated. 

We tied our visit into our topic all about dinosaurs and the children have produced amazing writing as a result. We have created information pages on dinosaurs, sent letters to Jam, created our own stories starring Jam and written dinosaur poems.  This has also then helped link our Science topic where the children have learnt to group animals in different ways and we have done lots of measuring and data handling linked to our visit in Maths.

The children are still talking about Jam weeks later- definitely an experience that they will never forget!

Lauren Katie Worth – Reception Teacher Cavendish Primary School


Thank you so much for an amazing time with Jam the T-rex.

We had a workshop booked for 90 reception children. Sam and Joe were very organised and worked with the children in two different groups. The workshop was fantastic, totally aimed at reception children. Not only did the children interact with the T-rex, but the way the workshop was delivered was brilliant, every single child was engaged. It included facts, games and lots of fun!

We also did some green screen movie making, which was brilliant. A week later we are still watching the videos of us being chased by dinosaurs!

Not only were reception in complete awe of the dinosaur, but they kindly took the dinosaur into the playground at playtime so KS1/2 could also take part in the experience. It was talked about all around school!

Couldn’t of thought of a better way to start our dinosaur topic! Thank you!

Nikki Arnold – Meanwood COFE Primary School

Absolutely fantastic!! The whole school were buzzing for days after their visit from Jam! What a memorable experience Sam, Joe and Jam created for the children! Sam and Joe were incredible. I would highly recommend this workshop!

Simon Buckberry – Teacher

What an incredible afternoon we had with Jam! Our special needs learners from Lower School (EYFS-Y8) were so shocked and surprised to see a dinosaur in the hall The children loved how they were able to engage with it, explore its anatomy and facts and also have a laugh at the same time. They were buzzing for the day and they all left to go home, speaking to this about it. Even the staff were astounded with what happened that afternoon. Thank you boys!
