In term 5 our Science learning is based on rocks, fossils and soils.


During the term children will be comparing and grouping together different kinds of rocks based on their appearance and properties through observation and investigating.  We will look at how and why different rocks are used for certain purposes and how they may change over time.  We will explore how fossils are formed when things that have lived are trapped within rock and look at the work of Mary Anning.  Our learning will also focus on how soils are made from rocks and organic matters.  This learning will link closely to our topic  titled 'what on earth is beneath my feet'.
