In Year 6 we have been learning about natural disasters. We kicked off the topic with a WOW day last month and since then have been covering lots of different natural disasters. We started by looking at the layers of the earth and did some beautiful artwork. We learnt about how the earth’s crust isn’t one solid layer but instead is made up of many different tectonic plates.  This then explained how earthquakes and volcanoes are created and the disastrous effects they have around the world. We learnt about early seismological devices and had a go at making our own – we had some very creative methods of telling when an earthquake had hit. We are now moving on to the wet and wild disasters and will be looking at tsunamis, typhoons, floods and hurricanes.

The children have been producing some fantastic home-learning pieces throughout the topic. We have had model volcanoes, survival shelters and delicious recipes. We have been very impressed by the hard work and effort that has gone into the tasks that children have been tackling. There has been some incredibly tricky word searches made, stories written and amazing fact files created with astonishing facts. Well done Year 6!
