In Science this half term, we have been learning about Rocks. For our Science day this half term, we investigated which types of soil were the most permeable. The children set up an investigation, making sure that it was a fair test, using a range of different soil types, measuring cylinders, filter paper, funnels and containers.

They did some fantastic scientific write ups in their science books.
