Year One Class - Squirrels

Soil Investigation - This afternoon, KS1 had lots of fun learning about soil. We discovered that soil can come in different colours and textures. We went on a soil hunt around the school and collected various samples. Using our senses and magnifying glasses, we took a closer look at the soils. We combined all of our soil samples into one pot and added water. After giving it a vigorous mix, we're eagerly awaiting the results overnight! We're hoping to see the different layers of soil.
