In the Rocks, Relics and Rumbles project, we will learn about the different layers of the Earth, including plate tectonics and their potential effects on the Earth's surface. We will investigate different types of rock to learn about their uses and properties. We will also investigate soil and fossils, including learning about the work of Mary Anning. We will have the opportunity to use maps to learn about the lines of latitude and longitude and a compass to learn about the cardinal and intercardinal points. We will also learn about volcanoes, earthquakes and tsunamis and the long and short-term consequences that these can have.
During the project, the children will be answering our Big Question of 'How was the Earth formed?'
