Westbury Junior School trip to Charmouth

Story posted on

Children at Westbury Junior School went searching for fossils in Charmouth.

Year 3 children have been studying the coast this term.  They have learnt about rocks and fossils, safety at the coast as well as the life of palaeontologist, Mary Anning who found many fossils at Charmouth beach.

During the trip, the children found a range of fossils from ammonites to crinoids. Teaching assistant, Julie Hogarth said “It was just wonderful to watch the children find their very own fossils – and all of them did!”
