This Term we are reading Earth Shattering Events by Robin Jacobs and Sophie Williams



Text Synopsis:

This brilliant book around natural phenomena - sometimes causing natural disasters on mass-scale - is fascinating and slightly sobering in equal measures: the geography and physics of tsunamis, volcanoes, blizzards, earthquakes and a whole plethora of other ways that mother nature will, from time-to-time, show who’s boss are all covered. The fascination comes from the magnitude of events over history and the power that they have to destroy and devastate all that lies in their wake. But in this equation, humans are neither completely powerless nor completely innocent...


Each section explores what each phenomenon is, the causes and the related scientific and geographical facts. Then what to do to keep oneself safe in each particular scenario is included as a step-by-step guide to having the biggest chance of surviving the event.



We will be using our Reading VIPERS to help us to answer questions.


Reading is one of the most important things you can do to improve your education. You need to remember to read at least 3 times a week and write your reading down in your Reading Record. Your parents also need to sign to say they agree with the amount of times you are reading.


Parents, it is also helpful if you listen to your child read at least once or twice in a week just to check they are reading properly. Below there is a list of reading prompts questions to support you and your child reading at home.
