Earth shattering filming

posted in: Year 6 Blog | 0

this week in geography, we have found out about the 2011 Japanese earthquake and had fun making our own documentary films about its events.

We used crackers as the tectonic plates and playdough as the mantle (the second layer of the earth) to represent how it occurred.

We showed how it would affect nearby cities and towns, toppling buildings and disturbing streets.

“The work was interesting because we got to represent the 2011 earthquake with playdough and slinkies” said a pupil in 6J.
