Welcome to Klimt Class.
What an explosive term we have had in Klimt Class!
We have been learning all about the Earth beneath our feet and how it is not always as stable as we think it is! Our theme has seen us exploring the exciting world of volcanoes and how they can impact on the lives of people living close by.
We have written explanations, read survival stories and researched the case study of the Eruption of Vesuvius which buried the city of Pompeii.
Here are some examples of the home learning projects inspired by our work this term:
We were very lucky to have a visit this term from the volcanologist Dr. Michael Cassidy. He shared his experience of visiting volcanoes around the world and the exciting experiments he conducts. The children were enthralled throughout as he explained why volcanoes erupted and the different types of lava that become different igneous rocks. We even had a member of the class who told Dr Cassidy that he wanted to become a volcanologist when he is older. This was a truly inspiring experience for everybody.
We are very proud to share our Gallery of volcano pictures inspired by the work of the artist Margaret Godfrey.
Our class have also been inspired to explore the career of our class artist - Gustav Klimt - and created some fantastic reproductions of his work:
