The Age of the Dinosaurs

KS1 – Dinosaurs and Fossils


Topic: History and Science

Duration: 60 mins

In this session, pupils begin discovering some of the ways we find out about the past as they handle a range of fossils from The Amelia’s collection.  We explore how the fossils were made and what they tell us about what the world was like millions of years ago.  The session culminates with the thrilling opportunity to handle a fossil from a local dinosaur: Iguanodon!


Cost: 60 min session: £75 for 30 children
