An introduction to our new topic... 

Year 3 had lots of fun exploring different types of rocks as an introduction to the Tremors Topic that we they will be learning about this half term.

We started off the lesson by sending the children on a rock hunt. They used a map of the playground and worked in groups to find the rocks that had been carefully hidden. Before finding out the name to any of the rocks, they worked hard to sort and compare the rocks that they found based on their appearance, texture and weight. After finding out the names of the different rocks,  the children worked in small groups and used Ipads to research 2 rocks of their choice. They found out some very interesting facts!
