Year 3 marvel at rocks and fossils

On Monday, Year 3 visited Bristol museum and the Clifton Observatory as part of their science unit – Rocks, Fossils and Soils. At the museum, children participated in a workshop that allowed them to handle and investigate a wide variety of rock types and fossils. As scientists, children asked and answered many questions that helped them develop their knowledge and understanding of the world that we live in. At the Clifton Observatory, children studied the formation of the Avon Gorge and the Giant’s Cave. Here, they looked at the effect that weathering and erosion has on rocks over time.
