We ave been learning about Rocks in Science this half term. We have learnt about the 3 types of rocks and how they are formed. 


We we moved our learning on to look at the contents of soil and the layers of the Earth. 


We we can find lots of things in soil, including: 

  • animal poo
  • oxygen
  • water
  • dead animals and plants 
  • bones 
  • organic matter 
  • nutrients and minerals 


Mr. Hawthorne shared the different souls types that can be found on his farm. He shared the positives and negatives he experiences with each one. The children learnt that this can vary depending where you are in the UK. For example sandy soil is best in Scotland because there is a higher rainfall. 


The children were brilliant at using the knowledge they have learnt to make links to the farm. 


Thank you Mr. Hawthorne.
