FOSSIL experts paid a visit to a Huddersfield school – and made an interesting discovery.
Palaeontologists Aisling Dolan and Matt Pound came from Leeds University to Spring Grove Junior Infant and Nursery School to show pupils some of their specimens.
But they were amazed to discover that the most interesting fossil came from assistant headteacher Nadine Sadler.
Nadine and her family had discovered the four-inch fossil while on holiday at North Beach, Scarborough.
The Leeds team has taken measurements and photographs of the impressive fossil and sent them to the national Palaeontological Association for identification.
The Leeds palaeontologists visit to Year Two pupils was part of their learning project on dinosaurs.
During the session, the children examined fossils and learned to move like dinosaurs.
They also learned about world famous fossil collector Mary Anning, who discovered the ichthyosaur fossils in Lyme Regis.
Aisling said: “It is an amazing experience to come to such a lovely school.ŠThe children are so enthusiastic and know such a lot already”.
