Dylan’s two goals for 2015 are to achieve his Chief Scout Bronze Award and to find his own fossil. 👀
So, today we went out fossil hunting in two Northamptonshire locations – Weldon & Roade. The former is a working quarry and the latter a disused railway line.
We managed to bring back quite a good selection of specimens to investigate further…
If there are any fossil experts out there who can help us to identify them do shout!
Following a survey about favourite seasonal communication design (set as homework by his school), Dylan has now adapted his initial card/flyer design, had feedback on the initial work-in-progress from the Cranfield Speakers taste testing focus group and an offer of help from his old nursery carer – thank you guys, we’re into development mode at the weekend!
