It has been a very busy first week back after the Easter break. We started with introducing our topics for Term 5. In Science, we will be studying the properties of materials and why different materials are chosen for different purposes. We will look at how to plan and conduct a fair test as well as making predictions and drawing conclusions from an experiment.
In Geography, our topic question is: what makes someone leave their home? The theme for tis topic is refugees. We will look at the human and physical geography surrounding refugees and ask what factors make a home as well as the reasons why people leave their home and country to live somewhere else.
