Edible metamorphic rock

We used most of the same ingredients as our sedimentary rock to create this weeks metamorphic rock.  The sedimentary rock is squashed and heated under ground and turns into metamorphic rock eg lime stone becomes marble.

The end result was a dense, firm, shiny fudge with no grains or gaps like last weeks tray bake.

Review of the week

This week we continued to practise reciting our Scots Poems ‘Oor Wullie’ and ‘To a Mouse’.

We looked at the art by Scottish artist Steve Brown and make a collaborative colouring of one his his highland coo paintings.

We wrote simile poems about our mum or dad and will post some next week.

In maths we made 1 metre, half a metre and quarter of a metre paper strips and measured classroom objects using them.

Sedimentary rock

We made some tasty sedimentary rock which had lots of layers of soil, sand, rock, pebbles and fossils. We used broken up Oreo’s for bits of rock, crumbled digestives for sand, melted chocolate for soil, smarties and sultanas for pebbles and mini marshmallows and mixed fruit for shells and fossils. This was all squashed together and left for a few million years (10 mins in the fridge) and we then had some delicious sedimentary rock!
