Reviews of radio programmes featuring palaeontology, geology, dinosaurs or other topics of interest to Everything Dinosaur team members.
Fallen Kingdom Posters Donated to School
Yesterday, team members at Everything Dinosaur were able to take a break from their busy schedule and visit the cinema to watch “Fallen Kingdom”, the latest film in the “Jurassic Park/Jurassic World” franchise. We shall leave it to others to provide a review, but we were able to pass a couple of pleasant hours marvelling at how CGI and animatronics can bring about the resurrection of long extinct species.
Prior to the film starting we got talking to the friendly cinema staff. They were most interested in our work and as a result, one of the cinema staff members went into their office and returned with two posters. Free posters are being given out by certain cinema chains to help promote the movie, something that we were not aware of. Our posters feature a giant (somewhat oversized), Mosasaurus marine reptile feeding on a shark, a famous scene from the previous film “Jurassic World”.

Donating the Poster to a School
We thanked the staff for their gift of the posters, these will go to a good home. Everything Dinosaur has a school visit arranged for Wednesday of this week, delivering a series of dinosaur workshops to classes in support of their dinosaur and prehistoric animal themed term topic. We shall take these two posters with us and donate them to the school, perhaps the poster will help the children to remember that an animal like a Mosasaur is not actually a dinosaur. The poster might even inspire them to have a go at drawing their very own prehistoric animals.
When Everything Dinosaur team members visit a school, we tend to bring extra resources to support the school’s scheme of work and during our dinosaur workshops, the opportunity usually arises to challenge the children to undertake some extension activities in support of the curriculum.
We suspect that these two “Fallen Kingdom” posters will be gratefully received and we are sure that they will help the classes to create their own colourful and informative dinosaur and prehistoric animal displays.
