Fact Hunters: Rocks, skeletons & seeds

If you had been a scout during the time of WW1, you could have ended up fighting in the conflict! Jack Cornwell – who was only 16 – fought in the Battle of Jutland in 1916. When he died as a result of his injuries he earned the Victoria Cross.

Were you aware that the Needles is a row of three distinctive stacks of chalk that rise out of the sea off the western extremity of the Isle of Wight, UK, close to Alum Bay. The formation takes its name from a fourth needle-shaped pillar called Lot's Wife that collapsed in a storm in 1764.

Sharks don’t technically have any bones. Their skeleton is made from cartilage. Mako sharks are incredibly fast: they are able to swim at speeds of up to 50mph!

We have been learning about seeds. Did you know that the term for when a seed starts to grow (it needs the right amount of warmth and moisture) is germination?
