This Term's Topic will be:

Rocks, Relics and Rumbles.

This term we will be looking at and studying mountains and volcanoes. What happens when the Earth shakes? we’ll find out about the dangerous world of natural disasters and their deadly effects.

In the Rocks, Relics and Rumbles topic this term, we will learn about the different layers of the Earth, including plate tectonics and their potential effects on the Earth’s surface. We will investigate different types of rock to learn about their uses and properties. We will also investigate soil and fossils, including learning about the work of Mary Anning. We will have the opportunity to use maps to learn about the lines of latitude and longitude and a compass to learn about the cardinal and intercardinal points. We will also learn about volcanoes, earthquakes and tsunamis and the long and short-term consequences that these can have.

Help your child prepare for their project
Earthquakes and volcanoes are fascinating forces of nature. Why not research famous earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, and plot the locations on a map? You could also hunt for rocks in your garden and sort them into groups by their appearance. Alternatively, you could build small structures from recycled materials and test them to see if they could withstand an earthquake!
