Event - The Rock and Fossil Show

14 March 2011

On Monday afternoon, March 14th, Years 5 and 6 went to King Edward V11 Post 16 Centre to see the 'Rock and Fossil Show'. The show was organised by the British Geological Society.

We took part in lots of activities learning about 'Life through the Ages', 'The Rock Cycle' and travelled in a Geological Time Machine. We panned for gold and even experienced our own Earthquake.
