Velma the velociraptor visits the Foxes!
As part of their topic on dinosaurs, rocks and fossils, Foxes class entered a competition from Marwell Zoo. The objective was to design a new dinosaur giving facts and figures about your dinosaur and how it had adapted. Alexander was the overall winner - see the pictures for a look at his design. Part of the winning prize, which included free tickets to the zoo, included a visit by Velma the raptor. She certainly caused a stir, her extremely long tail only just fitting in the hall. Afterwards Velma posed with the children for pictures outside. All in a days work for a busy raptor!
