Amy’s fossil find

Years 10 and 12 geography groups had an interesting and educational visit to Kingswood in North Norfolk at the weekend – a full report is coming soon! In the meantime, look at this amazing fossil found by Amy H on Salthouse beach during the trip.  It is an excellent example of a micraster  – a heart-shaped sea urchin – which lived 125-65 million years ago.

Years 5 and 6 head to Kingswood

Our Year 5 and 6 pupils recently went away on a residential trip to the Kingswood Activity Centre in Overstrand, North Norfolk.

Judging by these pictures Mrs Doughty sent us, they obviously had an exciting time, learning some new bushcraft skills and, no doubt, boosting their confidence, independence and teamwork as well as having fun!
