Following on from last week, we are investigating Rocks and Soils as part of our Super Scientist topic this half term. If you haven't completed last week's activities, please go back to the week beginning 05/10/20 before starting the next part of your activities from home.
We have had some brilliant work on this topic completed and this week, thank you. We will be learning more about Rocks this week at home and the focus will be on Soils from Thursday when you return to school.
Test your understanding of the different rock types by watching the 'What is a rock?' clip and then take the quiz at the bottom of the page.
Learn about how fossils are made and the process of fossilisation and then take the quiz to see what your have understood.
Remember that additional activities are available using Purple Mash if you would like to do extra from home. We have been giving out lots of Dojos for all of your effort online and on paper! Well done! We love to see photographs of your ideas and lovely work. If you don't remember your Purple Mash login, then you can either contact the school office or contact your teacher through the Class Dojo app and they will give it to you.
If you are feeling really creative, why not make your own version of a fossil? An imprint can be made and plaster of paris can be poured in to create the 'rock' effect - if you don't have any plaster of paris at home, you could try play-doh or blu tack. If you don't have any, you could simply draw a fossil onto paper - think about the skeleton of the animal and which parts you want to draw. Perhaps you have someone at home who has found a fossil before? You could ask them where they found it, what it looked like and which animal they think it was from. Lots of adults also enjoy finding and learning about fossils too, it can even become your job called if you grow up to dig up fossils, you'd be a Paleontologist!
