Year 5s worked so hard today - stacking the den building logs so they don't rot, clearing dead leaves to encourage grass to grow, finishing the willow hurdles...

Year 3 have been investigating rocks and soils. They know that some soils are made from rocks, and that there are different types of rocks. To prove that there are, therefore, different types of soils, they used some to make paints.. great science, and brilliant organisational skills, well done year 3!!
