Spring 1

This term we are learning all about volcanoes and earthquakes.

In geography we will be looking at what causes volcanic eruptions and earthquakes and exploring the structure of the earth. We will be looking at recent volcanic eruptions and earthquakes and the after effects of these disasters.

In science we will be learning all about rocks. We will be looking at the different types of rock and learning about their properties. We will be looking at soil formation and fossils.

In music we are exploring sound and looking at volcanoes and earthquakes as inspiration to compose our own piece of music.

In English we will be developing our writing skills with explanation texts. We will be using the text 'This Little Pebble' by Anna Claybourne and the explanation text 'The Teacher Pleaser' by Pie Corbett as quality texts.
