Trewirgie Junior School

Our topic for the Autumn Term 2022 is....

'Where is the safest place on Earth?'

 During this term in Year 4, we will be looking at a range of natural disasters, how they occur and the impact this has on the world. As part of their learning, they will explore how different countries are affected, what is in place to mitigate against these, and how people living there adapt to deal with these.


We will be exploring the geography of earthquakes, the history of volcanoes and the science behind flooding and droughts. As part of their learning the children will have a go at creating pulley systems, learning how to draw three dimensional images, inventing animations and composing music to portray a natural disaster.


Throughout the term we will also be exploring what causes these disasters and what precautions countries and people take to survive. We will also be looking at whether there are measures we can take to help prevent these disasters.


For the legacy to this topic, the children will be creating comic books that tell stories involving a range of natural disasters. These will be sold by the children and the money raised will be sent to ShelterBox. With over 113 million people across the world having been made homeless we need to do our bit to make a difference to the lives of those turned upside down by a natural disaster striking. Hopefully you will support us and together we will make a difference to the lives of others.

Home Learning 

Below are 6 questions that we would like the children to think about. Each question has 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. Towards the end of the term we will be showcasing the children's learning linked to these six year questions. Please share any of their work on Class DoJo or bring into school with them.
