Wk beg 11.5.20 Volcanoes

Week beginning 11.5.20

Volcano week

We hope you had a great bank holiday weekend and enjoyed the lovely sunshine. Did you do anything special for VE day? If you did, send in a photo and it will go on the class page.

 

This week we will be finding out about volcanoes.

 

Aims: To know how volcanoes are formed.

         To locate the Pacific ring of fire.

         To research a famous volcano.

         To know what type of rock is formed by a volcano.

 

Activities:

Volcanoes are formed along cracks in the Earth's crust called fault lines. Our planet is like a big jigsaw puzzle and each piece of the puzzle is called a tectonic plate.

First, you must complete the tectonic plate activity at the bottom of the page. Can you find out which tectonic plate we live on?

 

Next, find out about the Pacific ring of fire. Where is it and why does it have so many volcanoes? Perhaps you could find out about some of the countries on the Pacific ring of fire and how many volcanoes they have.

 

You could also use your research skills to find out what sort of rocks are formed by volcanoes. You might even have an example of volcanic rock in your house. (Top tip, try the bathroom.)

 

As a 'must do' task, we would like you to do a mini project on a famous volcano. You can draw pictures, make a fact sheet, create a powerpoint or think of another really imaginative way of presenting it.

Some suggestions are: Mount Vesuvius, Mount Etna, Krakatoa, Mount Fuji or Eyjafjallajokull (we can't say it either- cheat and call it E12!).

 

Finally, why not have a go at making a volcano! You could make a 3D working volcano or just build a model using lego or recycled junk. What about a brightly coloured painting of a volcano at night? Be Imaginative.

Lockdown Time Capsule

For the next two weeks, as your literacy task, we would also like you to have a go at the Lockdown Time Capsule. We are living through a very historic time and the capsule will help you remember it when you are grown up and very old like your teachers!

Remember to keep reading everyday, practising your spellings and looking at Education City for your maths activities. Now you have been learning to tell the time, you should also keep practising doing that as well. Remember, life skills are important too. Tying your shoelaces, baking and helping to tidy up are important things to be doing at home alongside your projects.

Have fun and keep in touch.

One email or message a week is still required so we know you are okay.
