Rock Detectives

Year Three began their new science topic by investigating different kinds of rocks and their properties.

They began the lesson by comparing and describing a collection of rocks in the classroom. They thought about the uses of each rock and what made the rock suitable for its job.

The Children then went on a rock hunt in school and in the church grounds. They looked for the different uses of stone. In the church grounds they were able to compare the effect of weathering on the different grave stones.
