We will explore our curiosities about the planet we live on - what is inside planet Earth, the tectonic plates, the idea of continents and countries, volcanoes, crystals and magnets. We will visit the museum for learning sessions about the changing geography of the Canterbury region, and to learn about geology, especially in terms of different types of rocks and how they are formed. watch a simulated volcano explosion at Halswell Quarry, grow crystals from saturated solutions and consider how they grow in nature... we will integrate some of this learning into our literacy and art programmes.
