World Around Us 29th January

      Happy Friday P3 !  


Good morning P3 and welcome to the end of another Home Learning week. You have worked so hard all week that we thought you would enjoy a nice art activity today. So it's time to get creative!


Today we are going to learn about an amazing night sky phenomenon called the Aurora Australis or as it is also known, the Southern Lights.


Watch the video clip below and then read the Power Point to find out more.

**WARNING - the clip below has footage which contains flashing lights.**

Aurora Australis

The amazing aurora australis can be seen above Halley Research Station on the Brunt Ice Shelf. The aurora are caused by charged particles from the Sun crashing into the upper atmosphere and are only visible near the Earth's poles.

Next, have a look at these fantastic Southern Lights pictures below.





Your challenge today is to create your own Southern Lights picture, all you need is a page and whatever crayons, felt tips or paints you have at home. 


We can't wait to see your pictures so please send us a photo!
