Amazing Americas - October 2020
During our Amazing Americas topic, we looked at many geographical features of the continent of North America. We particuarly enjoyed finding out about the varied climate zones and completed puzzle packs, comparing different regions. The children had to match descriptions with data, including graphs for temperature, precipitation and daylight hours, as well as pictures.
Space the Final Frontier - September 2020

We conducted an experiment to answer the question: 'How do shadows change throughout the day?' We looked at variables that we could change and how to conduct a fair test, as well as making predictions. We recorded our results and evaluated the evidence to check if our predictions were correct . . . . we were!!
