Matthew Roby Teachers’ notes

Learn about artist Matthew Roby and his work Walkies, Rex! and investigate looking after your own mythical creature.

Matthew Roby's sculpture shows a man taking a large Tyrannosaurus Rex for a walk. Discuss with the children whether Rex is a dragon. What do we know about dragons and dinosaurs. Are dinosaurs mythical creatures? What would it be like to look after a mythical creature as a pet? What kind of animals make good pets and why?

Use alongside the Walkies, Rex! poster from the Myths and legends topic.
