Jurassic Outreach

Wide Horizons Jurassic outreach can be delivered in the classroom or at one of the amazing beaches along England’s first natural world heritage site, the Jurassic Coast. Sessions will be coordinated by Wide Horizons palaeontologist Simon, and will link to key topics outlined in the science and geography national curriculum.

We offer a range of half and full day activities ranging from organised fossil hunts to hands on class based adventures where Jurassic Coast fossils and dinosaurs come in to your school. Inclusion is at the heart of what we do: all ages, abilities and key stages are welcome.

A full day exploring the famous World Heritage Jurassic Coast at Lyme Regis. Pupils will hunt for and identify their very own fossils whilst learning about prehistoric life, evolution and key figures in British scientific history.

Fantastic Fossils: School based

Develop a curiosity and fascination for the natural world through hands on experience with World Heritage fossils. Pupils will be inspired by prehistoric dinosaurs, evidence of extinction and long-lost stories of life on Earth. Through a range of inspirational activities, pupils will engage with key processes of scientific investigation: asking questions, observation, classification, data recording and sharing ideas.

Jurassic Coast Case Study: Coastal or class based

Secondary and A Level Case Studies: Our case studies are built in line with the national curriculum covering the sciences, geology and both human and physical geography.
