Year 2/3 – Whales

Welcome to Whales Class!

Our Class Teacher is Amy Kenney and our Learning Support Assistant is Nazish Sabah.

  • Will the building be strong enough?

    Today we learned about the earthquakes that happen in Japan. We found out that Japan can have up to 1,500 earthquakes a year. Because of this Japan have started to build houses that are designed to cope with earthquakes, ensuring that people’s homes are not destroyed and that people inside the buildings are kept safe. After learning about this we tried to build our own house made from spaghetti and play-doh to see if it could survive an earthquake. Unfortunately many houses were not strong enough!

  • Earthquakes!

    Today we started learning about earthquakes. We learned about the tectonic plates and how the movement of these plates can cause earthquakes. We also learned about the epicenter and how buildings closest to the epicenter are at higher risk of damage during an earthquake.

  • Exploding Volcanoes

    As part of our entry point for our topic ‘Active Planet’ we mixed together water, bicarbonate of soda, washing up liquid and vinegar and enjoyed the result of exploding volcanoes.
