DIPLODOCUSES, pterodactyls and even T-rex were brought to life as part of a primary school project.

Youngsters at Drury Primary School, in Buckley, created a display of the dinosaurs to complete their studies of the prehistoric beasts.

Each work included a fact book about their favourite dinosaurs and the pupils researched, wrote and built their models entirely at home and then brought their dinosaurs in to present to the class.

Different materials, including cardboard, foil or papier-mâche, were used to create the spectacular dinosaurs.

Teacher Recebba Lang said: “There was no first, second or third prizes as all the creatures were winners.”

Libby Edwards, seven, who created a spotted purple dinosaur made completely out of sponge cake, said her favourite part of the project was mixing purple dye with the white icing.

Her classmate Luke Sudbury, seven, made a more frightening dinosaur named Footyocus.

Footyocus had a small football for a body that was covered in papier-mâche and then painted red and blue. Luke says his favourite part of the project was painting Footyocus.
