Fossil Fun!

Year One went back in time this week.  We learnt all about fossils and how they can help palaeontologists learn about the lives of dinosaurs.  They even found out about a special kind of fossil called an ammonite.  Everyone had a go at making a fossil out of salt dough.  They had to roll it into a ball, flatten it and then make an imprint with a dinosaur toy.  It was very sticky but the children had a lot of fun.  Take a look at some of our amazing fossils.  Later on we learnt about extinction and that one theory could be that a volcanic eruption destroyed the dinosaurs.  As a follow on, the children enjoyed painting an exploding volcano.  Whoosh!
