To finish off our Science topic, we made edible soil profiles and wrote instructions to go with them. For the bedrock we used smarties, for the parent material we used cookies, for the subsoil we used chocolate mousse, for the top soil we used crushed bourbons and for the humus we used sprinkles. We also added in the all important gummy worms. The children had a fantastic afternoon making these!
We have learnt about different types of rocks in Science. We decided to sort them into a Venn diagram and had to choose our own categories.
