Rocks and Fossils

This week in Science we have been busy exploring lots of different rocks. We used adjectives to describe the properties of rocks inlcuding their colour, pattern and texture. We focused on Flint, Slate, Granite and Chalk, but we also explored Limestone, Yellow Sandstone, Marble, Coal, Obsidian, Pumice and Gneiss to name just a few!

We also looked at how rocks are used in our everyday lives and we discussed why some rocks  are more suitable for building houses than others!
