In Term 4, we learnt about different cities, both in the UK and abroad. We had a go at drawing our own maps with a grid reference, symbols and a key.
In Year 5, we learnt about the Earth’s structure, how volcanoes and earthquakes occur and some of the features of volcanoes. We thought about what it would be like to live near a volcano and looked at a range of different volcanoes, focusing on South America. You can see some of the volcanoes that we made for our homework project below, some newspaper reports about tsunamis and some non-chronological reports, which we wrote in English.
