Fossils R US

Date: 14th Nov 2017 @ 9:37am

This week we learned all about how fossils are formed! We studied the process of fossilisation as well as the difference between fossils and bones. The really exciting bit of science we did this week was create our own fossils. We went over to Chestnuts Park and gathered up bits that we thought would make great fossils. These bits included; leaves, sticks, conkers, feathers and rocks. Ms. Lomas and a couple other Year 3 students made salt dough that we kneaded ourselves then pressed our items into it. The fossils turned out so cool!
