Science Year 3 – Rocks and Soil

Meerkat, Science, Zebra

This topic allows exploration of the world around us. Pupils can begin to look at buildings and objects thinking about how they are made, what they are made of and why that material has been chosen.

So far this topic, pupils have tested a variety of rocks – exploring their features. Testing has introduced words such as durable and permeable. As the topic continues pupils will make a model volcano and create a mini compost bin as well as exploring our local environment in Burnham.
