Hi everyone,

Our Y4 students have been working on our lovely projects about cities and they created really nice models. Darlyne created her own city and explained the rest of the class about the public services.

Well done everyone!

Hi everyone,

This week 6th primary students have started talking about our planet during their social studies lessons. One of the issues raised in this new project is severe weather. Here is a link to the video explaining, for example, how tornadoes, hurricanes and thunderstorms are formed and showing students some examples. We hope you will like it.

Talking about Prehistory!

Posted: March 23, 2017 in SOCIAL STUDIES

Hi everyone,

In 1 ESO Social Studies we are about to start project work on Prehistory, the period before history started i.e. before writing was invented.

In the unit we are going to learn about how humans have evolved over a period of time and our ancient descendants.
We will be learning about the different periods of prehistory and how humans have gone from hunter gatherers to sedentary farmers. The type of tools they used, how they lived and what archaeologists found to show that these people existed.

Below is an interesting video that shows the evolution of mankind over this period, hope you enjoy it.

Enjoy it!

Hi everyone,

Students of 3rd Primary did a project that combined Social Studies (Countries) and English (going to). They are touristic guides of a place and explain the things we can do there. They were very creative bringing clothes according to the place, doing very interesting presentations and enjoying the chance of working together. Here you have the result…

In 2 ESO we are starting to study about human geography.
In the current unit we are learning about how the worlds population is expanding at an alarming rate and some of the reasons why this is happening.

Below is a link to an interesting site that includes a video about how the worlds population has evolved over time.
World Population History

We are also looking at the various methods of analysing population and how it has changed over time.
The students of 2 ESO are utilising their mathematics skills viewing and analysing data as PIE charts, Population Pyramids and Line charts

Enjoy it!
