Trewirgie Junior School

Our topic for the Autumn Term 2023 is....

'Where is the safest place on Earth?

This term, we will be looking at a range of natural disasters: how they occur and the impact this has on the world; how different countries are affected and how people living there adapt to deal with these cruel acts of mother nature.

We will be exploring the geography of earthquakes, the history of volcanoes, the science behind flooding and droughts, creating bridges, learning how to draw three dimensional images, inventing animations and designing weather stations.

As part of this project, the children will be learning about the impact of these natural disasters on people’s lives and what precautions they take to survive. They will also be exploring whether there are measures we can take to help prevent these disasters. As part of the children’s Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths learning, the children will be designing and making a bridge. This is linked to the charity we will be raising money for shelter box.

For the legacy to this topic, the children will raise money to support a disaster relief charity, Shelterbox, that aims to provide homes for people that have been affected by disasters across the globe.

We won’t stop until we see a world where no family goes without shelter after disaster.”

- Shelterbox


This will be an incredibly interesting topic for the children to experience and understand how they can make a difference as well as leave a positive legacy for others.


Home Learning 

Every two weeks the children will be introduced to a new home learning challenge. These will be shared with you on Class DoJo. Each question will have a range of suggestions as to how they can share their understanding of each. They can select any way of demonstrating their understanding.


Across the term we hope that your child is curious enough to extend and deepen their learning and understanding further. Every two weeks each class will select a winning piece of work that shows innovation, creativity, depth of learning or original thinking.  


Please share any of their work on Class DoJo or bring into school with them.
