During Science, the children learnt all about the layers of the earth. They created a flipbook of the different layers and described some of their properties. The children understood that rocks are important in geological processes and learnt about the properties of different rocks. They investigated the density, durability and permeability and learnt key terms: igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic. In addition, they learnt that soil is made up of different layers and used cereal to re-create a model of this. They enjoyed taking it home and filling it up with milk to see how water travels through the layers of soil.
