Curriculum Information

Our Key Skills topic for the Autumn Term is ‘What makes the Earth Angry’

All of our work will be centered around this topic. In Geography we will be researching what causes earthquakes, looking at tectonic plates and how volcanoes are formed. In History we will study Mount Vesuvius, looking at the events that led up to its eruption and the impact of this on the city of Pompeii. Our artist this term is the photographer G Brad Lewis and we will be creating representations of his work using chalk pastels on black paper.
