Working together to be the best we can


This week Year 3 turned into scientists!  They carried out lots of different investigations to find out more about rocks.  

The investigations included:


  • Testing rocks to see which was the hardest by scratching them with nails
  • Observing rocks closely and then sketching them looking closely at colours and patterns
  • Putting drops of vinegar on 12 different types of rocks and looking carefully to see if anything happened


Year 3 thoroughly enjoyed finding out more about rocks and particularly enjoyed wearing the safety goggles!
