Year 3 - Spring Term Big Bang

To launch our Spring Topic, Year 3 spent a day learning about natural disasters, including volcanoes and earthquakes. We discussed types of natural disaster, then used our geography and map reading skills to find continents, oceans and some places affected by natural disasters, in particular around the Pacific Ring of Fire. Then we had a very special visitor - our own Earth Explorer. She helped us understand how volcanoes can be live, dormant or extinct, then took us on a virtual journey around the world so we could become Earth Explorers too. We 'visited' volcanoes in Italy, a glacial volcano and earthquake in America, and a tsunami in the Indian Ocean. It was awesome!
