Year 4 Learn about Mountains, Earthquakes and Volcanoes

In Geography this half term, we are learning about Mountains, Earthquakes and Volcanoes.  We started our topic by learning about what a mountain is and the location of the world's mountain ranges.  

We have learnt about what earthquakes are and what causes them.  After watching some clips showing actual earthquakes happening, we considered what it would be like to be in the middle of one and what life might be like afterwards.  The children wrote diary entries, thinking about how they would feel and the kinds of things they would experience.
