Term 4 2020

Year 2:

We will be discovering Maori Myths and Legends: Maui and the Fish and Battle of the Mountains.

We will then look more closely at the question: What makes a mountain?

Key concepts:

  • The 3 main layers of Earth:  the crust, the mantle, the core
  • Tectonic Plates
  • Different kinds of mountain shapes (fold, block, cone)
  • Volcanoes – parts of a volcano, why volcanoes erupt

Ways to help at home

  • Talk about anything to do with the topic – in your first language (then in English if comfortable)
  • Share and talk together
  • Explain things
  • Show them things
  • Give them new information
  • Read books together on the topic
