We have read the book 'Stone Girl Bone Girl' by Laurence Anholt, which is the story of Mary Anning from Lyme Regis. She made an astounding discovery at the age of 12 when she unearthed the first full skeleton of a giant ichthyosaur. Following this discovery, Mary become the world's best-known fossil hunter.
In Science, we learnt about fossils and how they are formed in different ways but usually an organism has to be buried quickly in soft sediment such as mud or sand. In Art we created our own representation of a fossil using salt dough.
