Rock Cafe

March 2024

In Year 3, we have been learning about the rock cycle and the 3 main types of rocks. To do this, we took part in a 'Rock Cafe'. We used lots of delicious treats such as marshmallows, chocolate, sweets and ice cream to demonstrate how rocks were made. It really helped our understanding and we had a lot of fun.

Year 3 have been learning all about fossils in science this week. First, we learnt about the scientist Mary Anning who was a fossil hunter in the 1800s. Then, we learnt about how fossils were formed before applying our knowledge to create some of our own dinosaur fossils.
