 Welcome to Liverpool class 


This half term our learning challenge is based around the question - Could you survive a natural disaster?  We have been learning about volcanoes and earth quakes.  We have written an information text about volcanoes and we are now writing a story about Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius erupting.  We have learnt about different types of rocks and investigated if they are durable, permeable or how dense the rock was.  We had a fun afternoon and we were really lucky that some of our parents were able to join us.
