From the heat of North America's volcanic activity, it's a journey across the Pacific ocean and back in time to visit The Shang Dynasty and their revolutionary ways.
We will discover their use of animal bones, their journey along the Yellow River as well as the way they ruled their part of China.
The Fiery North
We begin our first half term with a trip across the pond to discover North America. As well as studying its people and places, we will focus in on its many volcanoes.
As we venture further, we aim to explore these volcanoes including what makes each one unique and the process of a volcanic eruption and how it affects the landscape and communities around it.
After waving goodbye to those raiding, trading and invading Vikings as well as their Anglo-Saxon companions, we welcome in a new topic. We switch to a geographical focus for Active Earth! We will focus on extreme weather and physical geography around the world.
Be prepared for tornadoes, earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes and much, much more!
New Year, New Topic
