After listening to Johns Gospel 1:29-34 ‘Here is the lamb of God’ and the words from our Mini Vinnie’s prayer.

Who is your Rock? Father Pat joined us in our collective worship to help us examine Holy Scripture (Matthew 16:18) (Matthew 21:1-9) and explore our big question ‘Who is your Rock?’
Chocolate Rocks. We investigated different types of rocks and how rocks are formed by making chocolate rocks. We used different types of chocolate to show different minerals and applied heat or pressure or both heat and pressure to make our rocks.
Making Fossils. We became palaeontologists to find out how fossils are formed and made our own body and trace fossils.
Investigating and Grouping Rocks. We can sort and classify rocks into the three rock groups: Igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary. We can use topic related vocabulary to name each rock and describe their properties.
Pebble in My Pocket. We observed the pebble that Mrs Towey found on the sandy beach. We thought of questions we would like to ask it and explored ‘I wonder...’ statements to ponder over in journey through time.
