Fossil Hunters in Year 3!

Each of the Year 3  classes visited Cromer by train. The children scoured the beach to find fossils and learnt about the history of fossil-hunting in the region from the Cromer museum curators.  

The children have been learning about Mary Anning and fossils, in their lessons at school so this field trip was a brilliant way of applying their learning in practice.

The children were able to see for themselves how easy it is to find ancient remains if you know where to look- and most of them found a treasure for themselves. A trip to the beach will never be just about the sand and the sea again!
