This term we looked at earthquakes.
Both Key Stages looked at the different types of earthquake and how they occurred. They learnt basic vocabulary for the movements and names of some plates. We used this opportunity to learn the names of continents as well.
The following week we looked at safety features in buildings and had an earthquake drill.
The vocabulary from the previous week was reinforced when the children designed their own earthquake proof house.
On the final week the children tested their houses.
