Mary Anning

Posted: 21 June 2021

This term Kingfisher class will be investigating the life and works of Mary Anning

During outdoor learning we had ten picture clues to find that would tell us what our topic was.   These clues were all things that had happened in Mary Anning’s life.  We placed these around the (unlit) fire circle and walked around talking to our class mates to see if we could work it out from individual pictures.

There were some amazing discussions and linking  of shared ideas during this time. We discussed each one and shared why they may link. One child was quick to recognise that it may be Mary Anning that we were going to investigate.

The children then worked in pairs and used twigs to create images of dinosaur skeleton fossils found by Mary Anning.
