Remarkable People Day

Published on 1st December

We had our first Remarkable People Day in Year 4 today, learning all about Mary Anning.

They found out that her findings were not taken seriously at first because she was a woman, but that her discoveries were really significant in our understanding of prehistoric creatures. They produced posters about her life and the important discoveries she made. In the afternoon, they created a 3d ammonite sculpture using card and art straws (we haven't painted these yet). They were all really proud of their work!
