As part of our Science Week of exploration, as well as continuing our geography learning, we’ve been making fossils this week!

How, you ask? Well, first we made salt dough for the mold…

And then we used plaster of Paris to create the cast…

Now that they’re dry, all we need to do is apply a little paint or chalk to make them more fossil-like. Watch this space to see the results!

If you want to have a go at home, here’s a link to show how it can be done:
