Ayaan made some notes to describe the different soils we looked at and handled.

We are continuing to learn about soil today. Watch the video clip to remind yourself about how amazing soil is!

We have designed an experiment to find out which soils absorb water and which let the water drain through. You can do the experiment at home if you can.

We will set up the experiment with 40 grams of soil on top of the cotton wool. Then we will pour 50 millilitres of water onto the soil. We will repeat this with 2 other types of soil. When we have completed the investigation we will record our results in the table below, describing what happened.

This is how Mrs Metcalfe has set up her investigation.
