Last week, we continued our Geography topic by learning about Mount Vesuvius and how volcanoes can impact people positively as well as negatively. We discussed why so many people still live near to the active volcano today and filmed our own ‘news report’ interviews.
In Science, we continued our ‘Rocks, Fossils & Soils’ learning by finding out what soil contains: rock, humus (not the kind you dip carrot sticks in!), air and water. We collected some soil from the school grounds to investigate and discussed whether this soil was sandy, clay or loam.
Help at home by…
- asking your child about their learning
- discussing technical vocabulary such as ‘humus’ and ‘loam’
