In Geography, we have been looking at the effect of volcanic eruptions and earthquakes and the impact they have on the people who live near them.

We started another fantastic picture book called Orion and The Dark which is about a boy who is afraid of lots of things but particularly the dark. We started by talking about what we were afraid of and drew our own 'circle of fears'. Check some of them out below:
We had lots of fun during our first VPJS Vocabulary Day! We had a 'guess the word' game, made a class dictionary/thesaurus and designed a VPJS Vocabulary mascot to be entered into a whole school competition so stay tuned to see who wins that.
Monday 17th January - Friday 21st January 2022
We have been looking at a new book 'The Village of the Round and Square Houses'. Last week, we wrote a paragraph to describe the setting of the village of Tos and another paragraph describing Mount Naka volcano EXPLODING! At the beginning of this week, we edited and improved our paragraphs to include lots of wonderful vocabulary. Have a read of our wonderful work below:
As part of our Volcanoes and Earthquakes topic, we have been looking at the layers of the Earth and the different parts of a volcano. We also came up with lots of actions for each part to help us remember.
