'How do natural disasters affect human lives?' 


We are excited to begin our new topic after we have completed our Greeks learning journey.

Natural Disasters - Hook

To get hooked into our learning, we used our drama skills and pretended we were in an earthquake. We had 5 minutes to decide what we needed to take with us, ‘packed our bags’ and found a safe place to take cover. We then waited for the earthquake to pass, listening to it from our safe places. After we came back to safety, we learnt more about earthquakes, with a focus on the earthquake that has recently happened in Turkey and Syria.

We enjoyed learning about what earthquakes are and what causes them! Next, we will be learning about how earthquakes impact humans!
