Term 1's Learning

Tremors!

 

Our learning this term:

 

Tremors. Overwhelming and mighty, Mother Nature’s awesome energies hiss and roar deep within the earth. Plates collide, spewing lava. Rocks rain down and mud slides in torrents. Towns and cities vanish under ashen clouds.

Discover the dangerous and ferocious world of natural disasters, and glimpse their savage and deadly effects. Visit the ancient city of historic Pompeii, frozen in time, then create your own blistering explosions from model volcanoes that fire foamy lava. Discover the properties of rocks shaped by the Earth’s breath-taking power.

Watch out! Volcanologists detect formidable rumblings from an extinct volcano in Scotland’s capital. Red alert! What would you do?

In Art and DT this term we have been working on our sculpting skills whilst working with clay. We had great fun with our parents and carers creating our very own clay city:
