Geology Workshop:
Bluebell Class spent a morning investigating rocks and fossils with Mr Bee, from the Oxfordshire Geology Society.

We learnt how to identify the different types of rocks and how they were formed and then found out which ones absorbed water and which ones could be scratched with a coin.

The whole class created the layers of the earth and how they move, from the earth's core to the outer crust.

We really enjoyed looking at the unusual fossils and what the creatures looked like millions of years ago. The next time we go the beach we will be keeping our eyes peeled for ammonites and echinoids.
