Welcome to Class 3 and Class 4!

Our Curriculum Project for Summer 2022 is Tremors

Tremors

What happens when the Earth shakes? In this project, we’ll find out about the dangerous world of natural disasters and their deadly effects. This term we’ll find out about different types of rocks and sort them according to their properties. By carrying out research, we’ll investigate the Earth’s layers and the location of volcanoes, discovering what causes them to erupt. We’ll write powerful poetry inspired by our work on volcanoes. Working as archaeologists, we’ll locate Mount Vesuvius on a map and find out what it was like to live in Pompeii during the eruption. Using our model making skills, we’ll build earthquake-proof structures and test them out. We’ll also use different modelling materials to create a volcano – watch out, it’s going to blow!
