Topic

Science 

Today in science we began our new topic - Light. We started by discussing what we already knew about the concepts of light and dark. Then, we went on to learn how to define light and dark scientifically. We now know that dark is the absence of light and we need light to see things. 

To prove that we need light to see things, we took part in a 'guess what's in the bag' activity. we realised that it was harder to see what was in the bag because there was no light source in there to help us see each object.  Once we opened each back it was much easier to see what the object was.

Geography

Today in Geography we found out that over 20, 000 years ago most of the world was covered in ice. Now, these huge sheets of ice are found only in Antarctic and Arctic. They are called the polar regions. We researched these and found out even though it is so cold, over four million people live in the Arctic. We investigated the word 'climate' and found out that 'climate' is the type of weather a place has the temperature, the amount of rainfall and the amount of sunlight. The polar regions have very cold weather all year round and there is lots and lots of ice. They have long periods of time where they are in complete sunlight or complete darkness. To end the lesson we thought about different ways we could help protect the Earth.

History

 

Today in History we looked at where Greece is in comparison to the United Kingdom. We then used videos, books and websites to research the Greek civilisation. We then were given a timeline and some key dates and facts that we had to put in the correct order. Finally, we presented our ideas to the rest of the class.
