Science

Rocks and Soils

This term in Science we have had two contrasting topics. The first half of the Summer Term we looked at Rocks and Soils. We learned about 3 different kinds of rocks and how each was formed. We did some practical investigations around the suitability of certain rocks for different jobs. Slate was better for flooring and roofing as it was non-permeable and quite cheap whereas Granite was hard wearing and tough but more expensive.

 

Forces and Magnets

This term we started to look Andy pushes and pulls as a force. We realised that you can’t see a force so we had to draw in the direction of the force. We always start with a what do we already know. As a class we had a chance to do some investigation with magnets. Look at forces that both attracts and repels.
