19th March 18

 

Prep 3 visit Stibbington for their ‘Rocks and Soils’ Science topic.

 

They carried out rock investigations:

Sorting rock samples according to features such as appearance and texture, using microscopes to aid observation and classify into igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks.

Testing for permeability and/or hardness to identify suitable rocks for different purposes.

Simulating soil forming processes.

 

They also visited a nearby disused limestone quarry to discover how rock was formed under the sea and to hunt for fossil evidence of creatures that lived in Jurassic times.

The day ended with the children learning the CEES ‘Rock Song’.
