This half term our topic is ...
Food from Around the World
Children will get to explore where food comes from. We will use our geographical skills to locate countries of origin, understand the processes involved in getting food from farm to fork.
As scientists the children will observe plant growth, as we grow our own vegetables in the school garden. They will work scientifically to measure, record and interpret growth to find out what helps plants grow quickly.
They will get to research the artist Giuseppe Arcimboldo and take inspiration from his creative pieces of artwork to create their own celebrations of food.
The most exciting part of this topic involves the children creating invitations, developing their computing skills (manipulating, organising, storing and retrieving digital content). For the final outcome children are inviting their parents to bring dishes from their home countries in for their class mates to taste and learn about where each other comes from and the foods which they eat and why. This is a date for your diaries; 23rd May ... we look forward to seeing you all there and tasting your delicious dishes!
