In the Rocks, Relics and Rumbles project, children will learn about the different layers of the Earth, including plate tectonics and their potential effects on the Earth's surface. They will investigate different types of rock to learn about their uses and properties. They will also investigate soil and fossils, including learning about the work of Mary Anning. They will have the opportunity to use maps to learn about the lines of latitude and longitude and a compass to learn about the cardinal and intercardinal points. They will also learn about volcanoes, earthquakes and tsunamis and the long and short-term consequences that these can have.
Year Three will be completing a companion Art and Design project to Rocks, Relics and Rumbles
This project teaches children about artistic techniques used in sketching, printmaking and sculpture
