We have had an amazing start to our Geography topic this half term of Natural Disasters.
We began with simulating an Earthquake in the classroom, we discovered how to react to an Earthquake and looking at lots of different types of disasters and their characteristics.
Next, we learnt about the layers of the Earth and their properties through making our own plasticine models. They look fab!
Then, we investigated how the outer layer, the crust, is not one solid piece but lots of different pieces that fit together like a jigsaw. These pieces are called Tectonic plates.
We investigated how they move with lots of different materials, most importantly, Oreos!
We used the Oreos to show the 3 different movements of Tectonic plates and looked at what those movements cause or create on our planet.
Something strange has happened in our forest area!
We investigated the strange thing that happened in our forest area. All of the trees were suddenly covered in foil. The metal in the natural environment was different and gave us lots of questions.
In our writing lessons we will be uncovering the title of our new book and discovering what it has to do with the tin foil in our trees.
