Weathering Gravestones

Willow Class are exploring rocks and soil this term. Over the past couple of weeks, the children have been looking at the effect of erosion and weathering on certain types of rocks. To give them a rich and real life experience of this, this afternoon the children visited the local Graveyard at St Peter’s Church in the village. There was a lot of discussion around the age of certain stones and why some certain stones could not be read. The children were also thoroughly excited to find the graves of our house names Budden, Singer and Pragnell. Despite the sudden downpour, and getting very wet, the children thoroughly enjoyed this.
