Rocks and Soils Educational Visit
Earlier this term, Class 3 went to Lower Smite Farm for workshops linked to our Rocks and Soils topic. The weather was rather windy, but we were able to get out onto the farm for some serious investigative work linked to our science topic this term.
We dug down into the soil using soil augers to look at the different soil layers in the field. We made our own soil, classified different rock types, and learnt about igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks using sweets!
A great time was had by all and we came back to school feeling very knowledgeable about the whole subject.
Please look at the other pictures we took that can be found in our Gallery.
