Y3 Rocks – Permeable or Impermeable?

Pupils think about how they could set up an investigation to find out which rocks are impermeable and which rocks are permeable. Pupils then set up and carry out their investigation.

Learning Objectives:

  • PoS - compare and group together different kinds of rocks on the basis of their appearance and simple physical properties
  • NaG - pupils should explore different kinds of rocks and soils, including those in the local environment
  • WS - pupils should ask relevant questions and use different types of scientific enquiries to answer them; set up simple practical enquiries, comparative and fair tests; make systematic and careful observations and, where appropriate, take accurate measurements using standard units
