Key Stage 2

In this interactive workshop, children will meet palaeontologist Mary Anning who will tell her story of discovering fossils in Lyme Regis, sharing her toughest challenges and greatest achievements. Through practical activities, object handling and demonstrations, Mary will guide the children through the excitement of finding ‘curiosities’, the puzzle of piecing the parts together and the joy of understanding what she had found.

The session will cover how fossils form in sedimentary rocks and how these fossils can give us clues about the classification of the animals and how they may have evolved. 

Online teaching resources support this session, so that the discovery can continue back in the classroom. 

Workshop Duration 50 minutes


Key Stage 1

Mary Anning will visit your classroom and tell her story. She’ll be dressed in her familiar outfit and bonnet and carrying a basketful of genuine fossils to examine. Then, our science presenter, will explain how fossils are made and the children will get the chance to explore the process with equipment on their tables and see what it is like to be a palaeontologist assembling a skeleton from a jigsaw of bones. Hands-on activities and engaging storytelling will bring Mary Anning to life for KS1.

Workshop Duration 45 minutes
