  • 1. The earth and the Moon

    We live on the planet Earth. The Earth has one satellite. It is called the Moon. The Earth and the Moon are part of the Solar System. The Solar System is made up of the Sun, the planets, satellites and other objects that move around the Sun. We use maps and globes to show what the Earth looks like. In this unit we are going to study the Earth and the Moon. We are also going to study maps and globes.

  • 2. Air and the atmosphere

    Humans, plants and animals need air to breathe and live. Air is a mixture of gases. A layer of air covers the Earth and protects life on our planet. This layer of air is called the atmosphere. When air moves, we call it wind. Wind helps to move sailing boats and turn windmills and wind turbines. In this unit we are going to learn about the atmosphere and the wind, and the different gases in the air.

  • 3. The weather

    The layer of air that surrounds the Earth is called the atmosphere. All the weather on the Earth happens in the atmosphere. Changes in the atmosphere cause different types of weather. People who study the weather are called meteorologists. They use data from weather stations and satellites to make predictions about the weather. In this unit we are going to learn about different types of weather.

  • 4. Natural and man-made landscapes

    There are places on Earth that have not been changed by humans. These are called natural landscapes. Landscapes that have been changed by humans are called man-made landscapes. There are three different types of man-made landscapes: agricultural landscapes, which have farms, industrial landscapes, where there are factories, and urban landscapes, which are cities. In this unit we are going to learn about natural and man-made landscapes.

  • 5. The natural environment

    The place where a living thing lives is called a habitat. When we study a habitat, we look at the living things (animals and plants) that live there. We also look at the non-living things around them. Human activity can cause changes in the environment around us. In this unit we are going to learn about the natural environment.

  • 9. Matter and materials

    Everything around us is made of matter. Matter can be solid, like a table, liquid, like milk, or gas, like the air. All matter is made of different materials. Some things are made of wood, like a pencil. Other things are made of fibres, like clothes. Some things are made of metal, like scissors. Materials can be natural, like wood and cotton, or artificial, like plastic and glass. In this unit we are going to learn about matter and materials.

  • 10. Heat, light and sound

    Heat, light and sound are all around us. We can feel heat from the Sun in the summer and from a radiator in the winter. We need light to see people and objects. We get light from the Sun during the day and from lamps during the night. We hear sounds all the time. Pleasant sounds make us feel happy or relaxed. Unpleasant sounds make us feel unhappy or uncomfortable. In this unit we are going to learn about heat, light and sound.

  • 11. Energy

    We need energy to move. Humans get energy from food. Machines get energy from petrol or electricity. The Sun is a natural source of energy. We call the Sun a renewable energy source because it is unlimited. Natural gas and coal are also natural energy sources. But they are non-renewable because they are limited. In this unit we are going to learn about energy and energy sources.

  • 12. Machines

    We use machines in many different ways. Machines help to make our work easier. We use them every day. We use different machines for different things. What we use a machine for is called its function. We use cars for travelling, washing machines for washing clothes and diggers for digging holes in the ground. In this unit we are going to learn about machines, their different functions and how they work.

  • 13. Work

    People need to work to live. We receive money for the work we do so that we can buy the things we need. Jobs help society to function well. There are many types of jobs.

  • 20. Our distant past

    The things that happened a very long time ago, happened in the distant past. We know about them because we can see many remains from the past, like monuments, buildings or paintings.
