Peaks, Eruptions and Tremors:

Living on the Edge

Picture 1

Our theme this term in Geography is based on the study of mountains, volcanoes and earthquakes around the world.

 

The work will include a trip to Carding Mill Valley to look at how mountains are formed and carry out map work. They will also have a talk from a climber and mountaineer about his experiences and the equipment needed to scale the peaks.

 

They will research and write a variety of explanation texts about mountains, volcanoes and earthquakes. The children will be looking at the formation of these natural phenomena and the impact they have on humans and wildlife.

As part of a homework project they will have the opportunity to create their own versions of the world’s most famous peaks.

 

During Design and Technology sessions on structures the children will first study a range of shelters. Following this they will design and make a scale model of a shelter for mountaineers or make a model of a bird hide.
