Exploring Rocks!

This morning, the Senior Room helped the children in the Junior Room to become geologists when they went out into the morning sun and explored a variety of different rocks. They observed each rock carefully to find out if the rocks could float or sink or if they were permeable. They looked even closer at the rocks using magnifying glasses to identify patterns in the rock, the colour of the rock and whether the rock was hard or soft. As well as the rocks we found around the school grounds, we also had some unusual lovely glittery quartz rocks, some porous volcanic rocks with loads of small holes and we even found out that chalk is a type of rock! We recorded all of our information on a chart.
