In our science lesson this week, we continued to learn about how night and day occurs and how different parts of the world experience night and day at different times. We made predictions to compare times when night and day occurs in the UK with other countries. We then used timezone maps to check whether our predictions were correct.

WB 23.09.19 - 'Out of this World' Blogging Day

 

On Monday 23rd September, we had a blogging day linked to our space-themed topic. We began the day by drawing sketches of the Moon and listening to 'The Planets' by Holst. Then, we researched facts about Neil Armstrong and used the information to create fact files about the first man on the Moon. In the afternoon, we wrote explanation texts so share how day and night occurs before writing some blog posts. You can read our thoughts about the day at: toucan2019.norbridgeblogs.net
