Room 5 really enjoyed learning all about Mary Anning, one of the best fossil hunters to ever live. We learned that Mary was born in 1799 in Dorset, and went hunting for fossils with her Dad when she was little. Room 5 were very shocked to find out she didn’t get credit for her work for a long time just because she was a lady! Luckily we can all remember her today for her great finds.
We learned a Palaeontologist Poem to help us remember what this big word means, and had lots of fun making our own fossil pictures. We hope you enjoy looking these pictures of us hard at work on our creations!
