Kim Judge, Learning Hub Programme Manager at the Cathedral, said, “We’re thrilled to welcome back Teach Rex to the Cathedral this half-term. They put on a great show that’s full of excitement with learning points for both children and parents. We know that dinosaurs are always popular with young children, and this is a fantastic opportunity for them to engage with life-size versions!”
