Sedimentary Rock

Today in Science we made ‘sedimentary rock’ sandwiches. We learned how sedimentary rock was made and had a go at replicating that by pretending that the things we added to our sandwich were different layers or the rock.



Testing Rocks!

In science, this term, we are looking at rocks.  This week, we have tested rocks to find out if they are porous, how hard they are, whether they flat or sink and whether they are affected by vinegar.

We also used

testing rocks

to check our results and to find out about how rocks split as we were not able to try this for ourselves.

The children were very excited to find out that one type of rock does float!  Another types of rock fizzes when vinegar is placed on it.

Over the next few weeks, we will be discovering how rocks were made, how fossils were made and how soil is made.


This term we are learning about ‘Rocks and Soils’ this game investigates the properties and supports what we have been learning in class this week. What properties can you remember?
