This week, Year 3 had the opportunity to enhance their knowledge of rocks and fossils when they visited the Sedgwick Museum. Children explored the museum first, identifying each end of the timeline that runs throughout the museum. Working in groups, children investigated different types of rocks, their features and their potential uses. Despite it being a geology museum, children were set the tricky challenge of finding objects that were man-made, such as tools. When we arrived back to school, enthused by the trip, some children even began their own rock collections and managed to discover a variety of rocks around the school grounds, including a large sheet of slate! All of the children thoroughly enjoyed their experience.
