The question that we are going to be answering through our geography work this half term is 'How do disasters change our world?' This week, we have started to unpick this question. 

We began by defining what a disaster is. The children collected dictionary definitions and from those picked out common themes to write their own. The key themes we discovered are that disasters are sudden, and cause destruction and loss of life. 

We researched some past disasters, from the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in Pompeii to the Boxing day Tsunami in the Indian Ocean. We then split the disasters up into categories, with natural disasters being one and man-made disasters being the other. We discussed the differences and the similarities between the two. 


Our main focus is going to be on natural disasters, and so we moved on to those next. The children researched different types of natural disaster and found out information about each. They recorded these in their theme books.

We then moved on to looking at positions and locations on Earth, which we will carry on with next week along with investigating where on Earth most natural disasters happen.
