Mary Anning’s visit to school and Fossilisation Process

In Year 3, we have learnt about the different kinds of fossils and how they form.

We could explore and handle lots of real fossils.

Mary Anning, renowned fossil hunter from Dorset (1799-1847) came today to visit Year 3 at Suffah. Mary spoke to the children about the important people in her life, how she became a famous fossils hunter and her discoveries. Then. she shared fossils of shells, ammonites and shark teeth with the class. She also shared some techniques for getting the fossils out of the rock gently.
