We spent the first part of our Spring term learning all about volcanoes and earthquakes.
We discovered how the Earth is structured, how volcanoes are formed and what causes volcanoes to erupt and earthquakes to occur.
We also learned about what happened when Vesuvius erupted in 79AD.
This dramatisation of the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD, described by Dr Margaret Mountford, gives a detailed description of this natural disaster which buried Pompeii and Herculaneum.
We learned about the different periods of time within the Stone Age before finding out more about how people survived in Stone Age times. Then we discovered about Skara Brae and why it was of historical importance. We also learnt about the Bronze Age. Finally, we discovered more about the Iron Age, focusing on the discovery of the ‘Lindow Man’.
We discovered all about Modern Europe in an exciting and informative topic. We learnt to understand the amazing physical and human geography of Modern Europe. We travelled around, learning key facts and exploring the varied countries that make up our European continent. We developed skills in human and physical geography and our historical and cultural knowledge of these countries as well!
We worked as a class to identify all the countries that make up Europe. We had to cut each country out and place it on our learning wall in the right place.
We have learned about the capital cities of different European countries. We worked in small teams to research facts and famous landmarks of our chosen capital city.
