Fantastic fossils in EYFS!


Nursery and Reception children in EYFS have been turning detective this week and discovering all about fossils. The story ‘A girl called Mary’ kicked off our learning, introducing the famous fossil hunter Mary Anning. There has been much excitement watching videos about the process of fossilisation, thinking about what the animal or plant may have looked like whilst it was alive and hunting in our playground for fossils hidden in and around our walls. We also enjoyed investigating clay and using it to make our own imprint of a fossil using different resources from our classroom.
