Overview

“Our year 6, staff and children, thoroughly enjoyed your workshop” (Teacher from Discovery Primary)

In the Age of the Dinosaurs, 150 million years ago, this area was under a shallow tropical sea, teeming with life. Peterborough Museum has a superb, internationally important collection of fossils from the Jurassic period, all found locally. Let us bring some of this collection out to your school as pupils discover what fossils tell us about living things that inhabited the Earth millions of years ago and how they provide evidence of adaptation and evolution.

Children work in groups as they handle the fossilised remains of the plesiosaur, ammonite, ichthyosaur and belemnite. The discussions initiated are supported with a power point and therefore access to a laptop and whiteboard are required.

A session is 45 mins to 1 hour and we can work with approx. 30 pupils at a time (from 9:30am depending on location). We can work with up to 5 classes in a day. 

The Fossils and Evolution outreach session is ideal for upper KS2. Our Under the Jurassic Sea outreach session is ideal for Early Years, KS1 and lower KS2.
