On Monday 21st January, Year 3 braved the snowy weather and attended our planned trip to the environmental centre.

Our focus of the trip was to explore rocks and soils. The children undertook many scientific experiments, including testing rocks for hardness and permeability. We also dug up some soil and looked at the ingredients and make up.

To end the day, each child painted a picture using different coloured soils. It was a fun learning experience that taught us new facts in an interactive and engaging way.

Because of the snow, we were the only school there and had full access to the unspoilt, deep snow in the playground! Snowball fights and snowmen building were the chosen activities here!
