A rocking Science carousel in Year 3

Year 3 rock!

Well, they certainly did on Wednesday afternoon, when we got stuck in to this term’s Science topic of Rocks.

Having determined that rocks can be grouped into 3 main categories – igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic – we set out to investigate them further.

We looked at them under microscopes and through magnifying glasses before sketching them; we used class and library books to find out some rocking facts; we investigated whether they were permeable or impermeable by dripping water on to them and tested their density by finding out whether they floated or sank.

Rocks really did rock our world and we’ll be rocking this topic for the rest of this half-term. I’ll stop with the rock puns now…
