Class 1 & 2 have done some fossil hunting in their topic work this week. 

The children have been finding out about Mary Anning (a world famous palaeontologist for her work on the Dorset coast of Lyme Regis) and became fossil detectives.

They were in small groups and had to find fossils using a magnifying glass and brush. 

They then had to carefully remove any fossils they found and talk about what they thought the fossils were.  After guessing that the fossils could have been teeth, bones or claws, we found out that they were actually belemnites.
