We will continue to work hard to get the best improvement out of the children and to make the year as enjoyable as we can.  As parents/guardians it would be of great benefit to aid us in this by getting the children to read for 20 minutes each evening and to sign their diaries to say they have done so.  We expect the pupils to write into their diaries what book they have read along with what pages and parents/guardians to just initial.


Topics

Tremors

 

This year we will be studying a range of different topics.  In this term we will be working through Tremors!

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 breathtaking power.

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