Investigating soil

This term our Science Topic in Maple has been Rocks and Soils.

We have already learnt about the differences between man-made and natural rocks and can name the three types of rocks, igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic, and how they are formed.

Recently we looked at fossils and how they are formed. We were amazed to find out that many of them are millions of years old!

Last week we talked about the properties of soil and went for a walk around school to look at it closer.

This week we studied different types of soil; sandy soil, clay soil, chalky soil and peaty soil. We learnt that different types of soil can be found in different parts of the UK. We discussed the properties of each type of soil and talked about which is best for growing things in. Here we are comparing the different types of soil.
