Active Planet: Devastation in Year 4

05 September 2017

Our Year 4 children from both TX and APP campuses have got off to a fantastic start with their 'Active Planet' International Primary Curriculum (IPC) topic.

Year 4 students from TX and APP campuses came together in teams to build model towns using paper and card. After careful consideration of facilities required for their models, the towns started to take shape and the students were delighted with their efforts. 

Unfortunately, disaster struck when an unexpected 'typhoon' hit land, devastating all the newly built towns. Emotions ran high and the children were horrified as they discovered the damage.

The activity was highly successful in giving children a hint of what it might feel like to be involved in a natural disaster in the real world. It was certainly a memorable way to start the topic and the teachers and children are looking forward to learning more about our planet over the course of the half term.
