Dinosaur day

On the 10th October, the hall turned into a prehistoric jungle when Year 3 had a visit from Portals to the Past. Graham, the palaeontologist, showed everyone a wide range of fossils including dinosaur fossils, plant fossils, crystals and even some fossilised dinosaur poo! The children completed a quiz to learn more about the different types of fossils and some history of palaeontology – such as the discoveries of Mary Anning. In the afternoon, the children had a go at sketching and labelling some of their favourite fossils from the morning and everyone got to hold an egg with a fossilised baby dinosaur inside!
