In Geography we have been learning about the world population and how it varies in different places and different years. We have also been learning about life expectancy in different places using a map and doing activities about the two things.population

In Science we have been learning about aerobic and anaerobic respiration. Aerobic respiration is respiration that needs oxygen and anaerobic respiration doesn’t. We have also been doing science posters to decorate the walls in the science class.

We’ve been really busy, but we’ve also had a lot of fun!
