Stones and soil rock!

During this topic we have been rock detectives. We investigated where and why rock is used. We know where rock comes from and how different kinds are made.  We have been fascinated by the way fossils are formed. We can identify various properties of rocks and understand how these gives rise to different types of soil. Finally, we went to get close up to some very impressive rock at Kents cavern.
