At the beginning of the Autumn term, the children in Year 5 enjoyed learning about earthquakes. They learned about tectonic plates as well as the Mercalli and Richter scales. They particularly enjoyed researching earthquakes which have occurred in South America and learning about how to prepare for an earthquake.
During the Autumn term, Year 3 learnt about the countries and capital cities of the United Kingdom. The children enjoyed locating Norwich on the map and comparing the human and physical features of the city with Birmingham. They also looked and Spain and thought about the similarities and differences between Spain and the UK.
