What are tectonic hazards?

Hello Zainab, Hope you’re keeping well. ‘Tectonic hazards’ are hazard events caused by tectonic plates colliding into each other, moving against each other, moving apart or subduction between a less dense plate and a more dense plate. Examples of tectonic hazards include: Volcanoes - these occur when hot magma is forced to the Earth's surface through fissures and cracks in the Earth's crust. Earthquakes - these most commonly occur when two tectonic plates move against each other. Rocks break underground at the centre of the earthquake, and then the Earth's crust shakes when energy is released. Tsunamis - caused by the rapid displacement of water. Tropical cyclones - rapidly rotating storm with a low-pressure centre, spiral arrangement of thunderstorms and strong winds. Hoping that this will definitely clarify your doubt. Please feel free to get in touch. Cheers :)

PGCE Trained Teacher/Private Tutor for Early Years, KS1 & KS2/7+ Exam Prep

I am a qualified EYFS and KS1 teacher. Having completed my PGCE in Primary Education in 2015, I have been able to teach in two different boroughs. In my first year, I taught in the borough of Richmond where I taught a Reception class. Here, I was able to use my skills to bring my class up to the national expectation at the end of the year. I am aware of the national curriculum expectations within this phase. EYFS differs from the KS1 and KS2 Curriculum as it focuses on 7 areas of learning. Here, it is important to gauge how best the child learns. Opportunities within the EYFS environment allow for the class to become independent learners, and I am able to create creative evironments in order for learning to occur. Here, skills in both English and Maths are embedded. The expection with English is that all students must be able to apply their phonics knowledge in order to form a legible sentence. Through the use of song, art, word games and handwriting practice, curriculum expectations will most certainly be met. This is similar with maths, where practical activities have allowed for critical thinking to take place. In my second year of teaching, I taught a Yr 1 class in Newham. Here, I was able to again bring my class up to the national expectation, with accelerated progress in certain subjects. The KS1 Curriculum picks up from the EYFS Curriculum as it expands on Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar within Years 1 and 2. These are all skills that I have practised with my previous class on a daily basis. Within Year 1 the expectation at the end of the year is to pass the Phonics Screening which all my class were able to do. With maths, the aim is to develop reasoning skills as well mental arithmetic. I tutor Early Year’s, KS1 and KS2. I also have high expectations and believe students need to be taught the skills to become resilient learners.
