10/11/2017: Science Workshop

Rocks workshop with Mr. B


This week, Year 3 enjoyed participating in an exciting ‘rocks’ workshop with Mr. B to start our new science topic. We were lucky enough to explore a range of rocks, including different fossils and minerals which Me. B had brought in to share with us.


In groups, we worked together to get hands on and explore a range of boxes which contained different rocks, fossils and minerals. We were able to: weigh a range of fossils, count the number sharks’ teeth in a box of sand, use scientific glasses to zoom in and explore a range of minerals and measure the length of different fossils. Mr. B also used a microscope which allowed us to take a closer look at the different parts of a rock and look inside different fossils.


WOW! What an amazing start to our new science topic!
