Year 4 Fossil Hunters

Year 4 pupils followed in the footsteps of the West Runton woolly mammoth as they explored the geology and fossils that can be found along the coastline. After learning about the age of the various strata of the cliffs, they set about finding their own fossils. The challenge being to find a belemnite or even an echinoid in the chalk bed of the rock pools. There were many great finds, including fossilised bones. There was even an unexpected live catch: a fabulous lobster spotted by Hannah!
