Andrea knows a lot about rocks and has an amazing collection from around the world. She came in to speak with us and show us some of her gems. We learnt about crystal and diamond quality as well as uses of rocks.
We were able to go to the Oamaru Rock Club where we spent a morning doing hands on activities to find out more about rocks. They had a huge collection and it was great to be able to use our knowledge and practice what we had learnt.
We have learnt that Sedimentary rock means a rock that forms layers. These layers are made from a range of minerals which are compacted and cemented together to form the Sedimentary rock. We used a range of minerals to do the same process.
We were fortunate enough to go watch the Royal Ballet at the Opera House along with other schools from Oamaru. We watched a range of styles of ballet and contemporary dancing which was incredible. The men were so strong and women-so graceful and flexible!
