In this short (9.47 min) KS1 video clip William meets Sophie and Cameron and they learn all about fossils.
William Whiskerson visits Sophie and Cameron in Lyme Regis. They meet a fossil expert and learn how fossils were formed from the remains of plants and animals that lived millions of years ago. They go hunting for fossils on the beach and visit a fossil museum where they see the skeleton of an Ichthyosaur and even some fossilised poo!
Aerial shots and general views combined with maps, graphics and children’s comments introduce us to the physical features of Lyme Regis and show us how fossils were formed along the Jurassic coastline.
