Rocks and Soils
As part of our year 5 science topic, we visited Macclesfield Forest to take part in a workshop all about Rocks and Soils. We had a wonderful time! We climbed trees, we walked through muddy puddles, we ran around in the sunshine and had fun playing hide and seek. We also visited an old quarry and had a chance to explore the rocks and all the creatures that live underneath them. Then we went back to the classroom and had a chance to train to be geologists. We sorted the rocks into different types and tested them to see if they absorbed water or not. At the end of the day we collected organic matter and used our forces mallets to try and make soil. We realised eventually that it takes a hundred years for this to happen.
