Becoming Palaeontologists...

Last week the children learnt about Mary Anning and her interesting discoveries. As part of this unit the children discussed the great qualities needed when becoming a palaeontologist and then put themselves to the test. Their challenge was to excavate the chocolate chips from a cookie!

"We found it tricky as you had to be very precise and careful not to destroy the fossil (cookie). Some of us found we were less delicate through the process!" Maddy, Katie and Maisie.
