Science 

This week we have been investigating the characteristics of rocks. We began by using magnifying glasses to observe the rocks closesly and use scientific vocabulary to describe their appearance and touch. We then put the rocks into groups based on their properties and labelled them. 
In our art sketch books, we then sketched the rocks and labelled them, discussing whether they were sedimentary, igneous or metamorphic rocks. We finished by researching the real life uses of the specific rocks and we used a graphite rock to draw with as this was one of its uses!
