Miss Reeder’s book of the month – March

posted in: Headteacher's Blog | 0

My book of the month is Stone Girl, Bone Girl. It is a story of Mary Anning, who discovered the first ichthyosaur and a complete skeleton of a Plesiosaurus in 1823. Mary Anning is our Red House Hero.

As a baby, Mary was struck by lightning, then as a little girl she found ‘curiosities’. She spent her days fossil hunting on the dangerous cliffs and made the most important prehistoric discovery of its time. This spectacular tale of a little girl who dared to be different and who followed her dreams will inspire our pupils.

 

You can borrow this book from the sharing library outside my office.
