Children at one Weston-super-Mare primary school got the fright of their lives when a dinosaur turned up in their classroom.

Year one students at Windwhistle Primary School, in Kingsley Road, had an exciting return to school after the summer break when they took part in a dinosaur-themed WOW day.

The schoolchildren got transported back to when giant creatures walked the land as they took part in a dinosaur hunt.

All the children’s searching paid off when, at the end of their hunt, they bumped in to Ronnie the tyrannosaurus rex and his ranger.

A spokesman from the school said: “The children were able to look at dinosaur artifacts and pose for photos with Ronnie himself.

“A fabulous afternoon was had.”
