Science week 2019

To celebrate Science Week we investigated how to get an object that was frozen in ice, just like the children from our class novel Ice Palace. Some children tried melting the ice with warm water, some tried smashing it and some children tried scraping it with different objects.

Science week

3LH used chocolate today to get a practical experience of how sedimentary and metamorphic rock is created. They layered grated chocolate into a cup then squashed it down with their thumbs. This replicated sedimentary rock,although some were still quite crumbly. Once they had seen the layers, they wrapped it back up in cling film and warmed it in their hand. This moulded the chocolate into a lump that changed shape, representing metamorphic rock.
