The science of soil

What might you find if you look closely at a sample of soil?

Form 4 have been investigating soil this week in their Science lessons. They looked carefully at a sample of soil and were surprised by how many different things they found in it. As well as plant roots and twigs, they found seeds, insects and sand. They also discussed the importance of washing their hands afterwards. 

In English they are looking at the story of Beowulf which ties in with our Humanities work on the Anglo-Saxons. After listening to parts of the story, they are planning their quest to defeat Grendel's mother.
