Science

Year have been thoroughly enjoying our Rock topic this term. We have been learning about how different rocks are formed and today we used chocolate to help us to develop our understanding. We melted some chocolate and then poured it onto a tray as if it was lava coming out of a volcano. We then left the chocolate to cool and harden, demonstrating how igneous rocks are formed. Then we used marshmallows, coco pops and grated 'igneous chocolate' to act a bits of sediment travelling down a river which settled onto our glass dish representing the sea bed. This 'sediment' was then compressed to show how sedimentary rocks are formed. Finally we put our 'sedimentary rock' into the oven to show how the effect heat would have. We found out that the marshmallows had completely changed and had become stretchy representing a metamorphic rock. We even got to try our 'rocks' at the end! They were very tasty!

During the first half term our Science topic was all about the human body and how we move. The children enjoyed learning about human and animal skeletons and how they help us to move, support us and protect our organs. We also looked at muscles and made out very own moving hands! This week you will have some homework linked to our work on vertebrates and invertebrates.

Below are some pictures that we made of skeletons using dog biscuits - the children did really well thinking about how they could represent the different bones!
