Prep School Trainee Palaeontologists!

Prep School pupils studying evolution and fossils in Science participated in a superb event this week when a palaeontologist visited the school with boxes of fossils for the pupils to study. Following a detailed talk by the expert on how fossils are formed, the pupils became trainee palaeontologists and careful excavated the mystery fossils using brushes. They then needed to identify and classify the fossils, analysing any unusual features using reference texts provided.

Our thanks to the Wilton Trust for making such a wonderful learning experience for the pupils possible.
