Our scientific rock investigation

January 2017


During our 'rock and roll' topic this half term, Year 3 have brought in a special rock they found during a walk through woods or whilst on their trip home. First, we held a rock competition! Then we began testing our rocks. We had to answer 3 vital questions in order to categorise our rock;
Does it float?
How does it react to acid?
How hard is it?

We now have a 3 week homework project based on gathering information about different types of rocks.
Please await a further update week commencing Monday 6th February 2017 as we will be presenting our projects to the rest of the class.
