The half term we are learning all about Rocks. We began our learning journey by comparing and grouping different kinds of rocks on the basis of their appearance and simple physical features.
Firstly we tested if the rocks we used in our experiment were hard or soft. Next, which of the rocks were permeable (allows water to pass through it). Then, we checked the density of the different types of rocks. Finally, we tested if the rocks we were using to investigate had a high density (sank in water) or low density (floated in water).
Animals Including Humans
In year 3 we have begun our topic on animals including humans. We had the opportunity to look at some bones of the human skeleton in our first lesson this week. We then looked at the purposes of our skeleton.
