Invite to see school project

VILLAGERS are invited to see the end result of Castleton children’s hard work researching fossils.

Castleton Primary School has been taking part in a Geology Project run by NE Yorkshire Geology Trust which has involved training with the teachers and a preliminary introductory talk by Mike Windle at the school, attended by parents and members of the community, when he described the equipment a geologist uses, brought along fossils and told the children how to become geonauts.

The whole school also went out on a field trip to Ganister Quarries near Castleton where pupils identified features and learned about the Jurassic era, as well as the Quarries more recent past.

The children have done follow up and made models and the whole project will conclude this Thursday (17 March) when their work will be displayed alongside that of the Geology Trust.

People are invited to the school at 2pm to take a look.
