Overview

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 you discover what creatures swam in these prehistoric seas.

Sessions last between 30 - 45 minutes depending on age and ability.

Children handle the fossilised remains of the plesiosaur, ammonite, ichthyosaur, belemnite and the steneosaurus (Jurassic crocodile). Children sit in a circle around ‘sea’ fabric and are selected to go under the sea to find a fossil. Other fossils are passed around the circle. All children (and adults!) are encouraged to participate in actions and movement.

We can work with up to 30 pupils at one time and up to five groups in a full day (from 9:30am depending on school location).

This session is suitable for Early Years, KS1 and lower KS2. For upper KS2, please see our 'Fossils and Evolution' outreach session or 'Evidence of Evolution' session delivered at Peterborough Museum.
