Framing

We have been learning about where our food comes from. We have looked at the farming in our local area  but also reasons why some food is imported from another country. We used a website to fnd out how many miles our food has travelled.

All children then planned their own meal, focusing on 3 ingredients. They researched where these foods come from, how they are grown and how arrive on our plate.

To help our understanding of farming and it's importance we looked at crop rotation, farmers jobs and the machinary involved. We enjoyed the book 'Right here, Right Now' which explained where the child's food from the day comes from.

Tydd

So we have now just finished our Tydd topic. We looked at our pace in the world and how the country in split into counties.

We focused our topic on learning about Octavia Hill - who was born in Wisbech. We learnt about why she was famous. Everyone enjoyed researching about the impact she had on housing and also open spaces. Children were amazed that someone who lived in Wisbech was a founder of the National Trust.

In English we read the book Chimney Child as this gave us an insight into life in Victorian times, when Octavia Hill lived. We wrote a diary entry and focused on the two children and compared the rich and poor life.

Welcome Back!

We have had a great first day back and everyone has settled in well.

Information about class routines will filter through the week and notes will be sent home in the planner to help you all understand the expectations.

PE days are Wednesday and Thursday. Wednesday is indoor PE, where children need shorts and t-shirts. Thursday is outdoor PE, where children may require a warmer layer as the weather cools down.

We are all looking forward to the new year!
