This term we have been looking at some new areas of science. We have practised identifying different types of rocks and having a go at describing them. We have also tested the hardness of different rocks samples. We tested the hardness by scratching the samples using different tools and seeing what happened.

We have also been recapping what we know about animals, sorting them into groups and then creating a knowledge map to show what we know and how we can build on our current knowledge.

We then began to learn about animal skeletons. We have looked at the three different types of animal skeletons and then we had a go at debating the pros and cons of each skeleton type.
