THE DINOSAUR DISCOVERY EXPERIENCE

The Magical Story Elves are experts in entertaining children, and we know how to take your students on an exciting adventure using fun, engaging and thought-provoking characters to cover key educational topics and themes (science, history & literature) along the way. 

With a background in theatre in education and a talented team of professional actors and primary school teachers we can provide a range of educational experiences, and shows for school groups, museums or historical buildings including engaging, hands-on workshops to support the curriculum. 

Theatre and drama are a fantastic way to enrich learning and we aspire for this learning to continue even after the session is over.

That’s why we have created additional learning packs containing lots of engaging activities themed around our performance/workshops and key texts to support teachers in creating links across the curriculum after our visit.

The Dino Time Machine

Our fossil hunters love dinosaurs a lot. In fact, they have spent their whole lives studying these amazing old creatures, but there is always more to learn.

They set up camp in the modern-day jungle, a site where Dinosaurs were known to roam. They plan to use Babsy the mad scientist’s time machine to take them back in time to meet their favourite dinosaurs in person.

While they wait for Babsy to set it up, they are visited by other jungle creatures included Leo the Lion and many other amazing animals too. Oh no a very cheeky Monkey damages the time machine which leaves an open doorway and transports Terry the T Rex and his Baby Brother Rex into present day. They quickly devise a plan to train the dinosaurs and send them back to the past. Join us on this exciting prehistoric adventure filled with music, fun and games along the way. Can you help us return the dinosaurs?
