This term, our topic is 'How active is our planet?' We have been looking at rocks, soils and fossils in our science lesson. To understand the 3 different types of rocks; we had a go at making our own chocolate rocks. Igneous: we melted chocolate so we had runny chocolate that would harden. Sedimentary rocks: we grated the solid chocolate into tiny pieces. Metamorphic rock: we melted marshmallow and chocolate so it became hard and squishy and mouldable.
Panthers Class have been studying mountains, rocks and soils this term. We went on a trip to We the Curious in Bristol to explore our learning further. We experienced lots of amazing and interactive exhibits including the Tornado Maker, the Leaning Lounge and the Electrical Storm.
Panthers Class have been studying the Iron Age. We made models of Iron Age hill forts from different building materials. We had to make sure our hill forts were secure from attack. They also contained roundhouses, forges, armories and watch towers
