Last week the Year 3 children from Queen’s College went to Cala Mondrago to investigate why there are so many marine fossils in Mallorca.

The children have been studying about fossils this term and the school trip made their research so much more relevant. The pupils firstly looked for shells or interesting natural shapes and used these to print onto clay to make their own “fossil”.

They next went on a fossil hunt
