We started this term by plunging into the past through the exploration of dinosaurs and fossils alike. On our first day back, a peculiar bag with some clues about the owner had been left behind by none other than Mary Anning! Mary Anning grew up in Lyme Regis, Dorset where she scoured the coast for fossils and became known as the greatest fossil hunter ever! These days you will find her discoveries in the National History Museum. We were fortunate enough to have been paid a visit by her and she graciously answered our questions about her 'curiosities' as she fondly called them. As a class, we have enjoyed learning about her remarkable discoveries and have even had a go at making our own ammonite fossils, which involved carefully measuring and following of instructions.
