Sapphire classes fossils

We have been learning all about Fossils 

This week in Science we have been learning about different types of fossils.

One type is mould fossil where an animal dies in the mud, and forms an imprint to make a mould.

Another type of fossil is resin fossil, which is where an insect gets trapped in tree sap, and it hardens to form amber with an insect inside.  

In Art we made clay fossils based around our sketches of mould fossils. We used tools to help us draw in the clay and we got really messy hands!!!
