Dinosaur Bones Found At Hayesdown!

Posted on: 16th January 2018

Pupils in Ladybirds and Butterflies stepped into the role of archaeologists like ducks to water! Following a short introductory talk the children eagerly picked up archaeology brushes and gently swept through sand to discover the hidden remains of ancient reptiles. Focus and engagement were extremely high and cries of excitement and wonder were heard as slowly but surely, fossilised bones revealed themselves!

Some bones were small whilst others were huge, some were clearly identifiable whilst others required detective work to identify how they fitted together.

What an amazing day!
