Year One started their history topic this week. The children learnt that we learn about dinosaurs by investigating fossils. They discovered that fossils are made over millions of years when soil and rock is compacted onto animal skeletons. They even found out about a special kind of fossil called an ammonite. All of the children enjoyed making their own fossil out of clay or salt dough. They chose their favourite dinosaur and pressed it firmly into the clay to make an imprint. Everyone was amazed with the results.
