Fossil Hunting

This term’s KS3 thematic approach is based around the topic of 'Animal, Vegetable, Mineral'. To bring learning to life, students visited the East Coast on a Jurassic Fossil Hunt!

After an initial search for crabs in the rockpools of Mappleton beach near Hornsea, they set about the task of finding fossils. Much to their delight, students found at least a dozen types of fossils in the recent erosions, combining geography, science and ecology into the visit.
