Spring 1 2021 - Rocks, Relics and Rumbles

Geography is the driver subject for 'Rocks, Relics and Rumbles' so from January to February half term, we will be learning all about Earth! From earthquakes, to tsunamis, to the layers of the earth and more! We will be studying different rock types, using our knowledge of their properties and also understanding why some parts of the world are more likely to experience an earthquake than others. 

 

We will be doing our very best to provide memorable occasions for the children amid the ongoing pandemic and will be keeping a very close eye on government guidance in relation to visitors and experiences. 

 

Please keep coming back to the website - we aim to add as many photos of the children learning as we can each week because we know how much parents and families are missing being able to visit school at the moment. 

 

Please do get in touch if you have any questions, queries or comments.

Week 4

RE

 

After reflecting on how Christians give up distracting activities in order to think more deeply about God during Lent, we thought about what distracts us from our work at home and at school. 

Then we made posters to make sure that people know that we are concentrating and do not want to be distracted.

Geography

 

Our task this week was to find some human features made out of rock. Which types of rocks did we find? Sedimentary, Metamorphic or Igneous?

Week 1

 

Geography

We investigated different types of rocks, including sedimentary, igneous and metamorphic. We looked at the different properties, investigated using water and used new vocabulary such as 'permeable' and 'impermeable' to describe our findings. It was great fun getting to be hands-on with the rocks!
Some of our Key Worker children created a PowerPoint to demonstrate their understanding of the different tectonic plate boundaries.
