Year 6 pupils at Taverham participated in a thoroughly engaging workshop with Jennifer from the Restless Earth Company. The workshop focused on the Japanese earthquake of March 2011, which the pupils had learned about in their lessons in the lead up to the Christmas holidays.
The focus of the workshop was cartographic skills around the earthquake and tsunami, and the pupils certainly developed these during the course of the afternoon. They wowed with their ability to draw nuclear exclusion zones and tsunami flooding zones to scale and plot HQs for Humanitarian Relief Services among other things.
All in all, it was a very useful and worthwhile experience for the pupils and many thanks to Jennifer for leading the workshop.
