Our Learning
 
In Term 1, we will be focussing on 'volcanic regions'. We will begin our learning by exploring features of maps including the equator, the tropic of Cancer, the tropic of Capricorn and climate zones. After this, we will study the formation of volcanoes and their locations. We will then complete a study of a volcanic region (Mount Etna) and compare it to our locality. 
 
In Science, we will be focussing on 'Rocks, fossils and soil'. This will include learning about the different types of rocks and how they can be classified, how fossils are made and also the different layers of soil.
