Last week year 3 went on our school trip to Irchester Country Park. Whilst we were there each class completed three activities. We went on a ranger trail with a ranger from the park who told us all about how iron comes from stone and why the stones in the park are different colours. We went in the ranger hut and looked at different types of rocks and looked closely at some real fossils. The ranger was very impressed with everything we already knew about rocks and how they are made. We also went on an exploratory walk of the park, imagining that we were real paeleontologists on the look out for fossils. We ended our walk by finding some dinosaur eggs and a dinosaur skeleton! We also had lots of fun in the play area!
