We had an interesting afternoon launching our new Science topic all about 'Rocks'. We started by thinking about what rocks are and how we could describe them. Aleese had some great ideas- she explained that rocks are like "nature's materials". We watched some video clips, which explained about the 3 main types of rock- sedimentary, igneous and metamorphic. Mrs Casey was amazed at some of the names of rocks we already knew..........it turns out a love for Minecraft comes in handy sometimes!!
We also worked in groups to investigate cakes and sweets to explore the features of the different types of rocks and how they are formed. We grouped the chocolates and sweets into groups depending on their similar/different features to the different rocks.
