As part of our research into Darwin and his Theory of Evolution, Year 6 investigated what fossils are, where they are found, how they are formed and what types of fossils there are.

We created information booklets using our 4 sentence paragraph strategy: statement, question, exclamation and command.

The children had the chance to explore the different types of fossils thanks to Wardle Academy, who kindly made their own fossil collection available for us to explore.

The children also sketched some of the fossil samples and used the knowledge they had gained to classify each fossil.

Finally, we were able to create our own fossil biscuits, making cookies and etching fossil designs into the dough before baking. We all enjoyed the biscuits…and so did the builders after we made sure we made plenty of extras!
