Bolton School girls from Middle School and also some Junior
Girls were transported back to the age of the dinosaur with a
hands-on workshop run by the Bolton Museum and Archive Service.
Alex McLeman, the Formal Learning Manager from the museum,
visited the school and brought along Prehistoric casts and fossils,
artefacts and specimens from around the world. Alex spoke to the
girls about the origins of the objects and when they lived on the
earth, and encouraged them to pick up the pieces and ask
Among the items Alex brought along were a stuffed Armadillo,
along with cultural objects from India, Australia and
the Maasai tribe. The Palaeontology section included casts of
part of a T-Rex's skull and the claw of an Albertosaurus.
The girls were fascinated by the workshop, organised by the
Girls' Division Learning Support Department as part of their Able
and Talented Enrichment Programme, and made sketches of their
favourite things from the collection as a memento.
