Trip to Bexhill Museum

On Monday, Reception and KS1 went out to Bexhill Museum for a guided fossil hunt on Bexhill’s beach. The children left school just before lunch so that they could have their lunch (a picnic) in Egerton Park and play in the playground for their lunchtime break. Many of the children were particularly excited about playing in the ‘hampster wheel’!

After lunch, we all went into the museum and looked at many of the exhibits. The most memorable were the bottle nosed whale and the dinosaur footprints and bones!

The curator (Julian) then took us all across to the beach and taught us how to find fossils. Julian answered lots of our questions about the things that we found. The children learned to identify slate, quartz, flint, cuttlefish, periwinkles, limpets and fossils. Nearly everyone found a fossil during the afternoon under Julian’s watchful eye!
