In geography, Year 6 are learning about coastal features and how erosion changes a coastline. We undertook some investigations to see the effects of, 'acidic rain' on soft rock (chemical weathering); frozen rain water on rocks (physical weathering); tree roots (biological weathering); rain water on sand (erosion).

In maths, we made clinometers to measure the height of a tall tree. We used our knowledge of right-angled isosceles triangles to establish the height of a tree.
