Year 2 had fieldwork experience at Dawlish Warren on June 13th. As part of their learning about the sea, they created tally charts as to whether there was pollution on the beach and why it was there. They also looked at the distribution of sea shells along the beach.
Year 6 are very lucky to have Kirsty Braddick, a parent and secondary school/ FE teacher of geography, coming into school in June to teach us more about volcanic hazards, such as mud flows, lava flows, pyroclastic flows and ash fall. The children will be doing a 'live' decision making activity based on the unfolding events of the Montserrat eruption of 1997 and will know what a hazard map looks like and that places can be susceptible to differing levels of risk.
