Looking at the news tells us much about what’s happening in the world around us. Whats more it also helps us to predict what might happen next. Read through some of the ‘Nature’ articles found on the BBC website and then:
1) Briefly summarise one of the articles
2) Identify the ‘change’ involved (what makes this information ‘news’?)
3) Consider how this information might help us predict future ‘change’
4) include a link to your article and a name when you respond to this blog post.

Our neighbourhood is looking fantastic with lots of visible provocations to get our students thinking and connecting ideas about CHANGE. Our neighbourhood has been transformed into a large museum. Come and take a look!

PICTURES of an elderly couple’s house standing in the middle of a huge dual carriageway as they hold out for compensation to leave have gone viral on the internet in China.
The photographs, widely carried by Chinese state media and internet sites, show a partially demolished five-storey block of flats in the centre of the road in the eastern province of Zhejiang.
The phenomenon is called a NAIL HOUSE in China, as such buildings stick out and are difficult to remove, like a stubborn nail.
