George’s Marvellous medicine!

We have had a very exciting morning in 3RK. This week we have been focusing on play scripts in English and volume in Maths.

Which rock is best to build a wall? 

This week we have been investigating which rocks would be best to build a wall. We tested different rocks for permeability and hardness. The children were very scientific and made some great predictions. They used the equipment well and decided at the end that slate and marble would be best. We then talked about how some rock are expensive and how marble would make a very expensive wall! Here are some pictures of us completing the investigation. 

  

Rock investigations 

Over the past couple of weeks ŵe have been doing lots of investigations in science. We looked at different types of rocks and decided on different ways of sorting them. We used a Venn diagram with headings such as light/dark, rough/smooth and hard/soft. After discussing the three main rock types we tried to make them out of chocolate! It was very messy but we manage to show sedimentary and metamorphic rocks. I then made igneous rock by dropping the chocolate in boiling water and the waiting for it to cool. Here are some pictures of our investigations.
