Year 1 find out about Mary Anning
Year 1 have been enjoying their Autumn1 topic ‘Animal Antics’. They have learned about lots of different groups of animals and thought about where in the world they live. The class wanted to know who first found out about all these animals: The bbc primary history website taught us lots about Mary Anning – a fossil hunter from Lyme Regis who discovered a very large dinosaur fossil which can now be seen at The Natural History Museum in London. They have also learned a little about three famous naturalists: Charles Darwin, Sir Richard Attenborough and Steve Backshall, who have each taught us lots about the animals that live on our planet.
