Home Learning

We hope you enjoy this topic on Rocks and Soils. We are going to learn about the main different types of rock; how they are formed and where they are found. We will learn about what type of rocks have fossils in them; how fossils are formed and what we can learn from fossils. We will discover the importance of soil; how it is formed and about the main different types of soil. We have included ideas for practical activities as well as a range of film clips, online activities and paper based tasks. These topic materials will be available until Friday 15th May to work through at your own pace although each section (Rocks, Fossils and Soils) will be on its own page. Have fun everyone.

The best way to investigate soil at home is to try and grow some plants in it.
You may have a garden where you could grow some plants or seeds or you may be able to grow some things in a container if you don’t have a garden.
You need to look after whatever you decide to grow to keep it strong and healthy
– our next science topic is on Plants.
