Home Reading Books
Every child has been allocated a reading day. Please can you ensure that books are brought in on their day so they can be listened to and books changed. Please write a short comment in their orange reading record and sign when you have heard your child read.  They will also read once a week within a group.

New topic activities will be given out very soon. However, there are still lots of outstanding learning logs from the autumn term. Please can you ensure that these are returned so the new activity log can be stuck in. Click on the file below to download a copy of the activities.
Learning Information
Autumn Term 2016
This half term our topic is:
Global Gourmet!

This project has a food design and technology focus and teaches children about different food types from around the World, fair trade and the importance of eating a healthy diet for well being. At the heart of this project children will learn how to write formal and informal letters and develop additional skills in writing to advertise and inform.

In the Innovate Stage children apply their skills and understanding by opening an International Café for the day.

In this project the children will learn:

• Where food originates from, and how food has a ‘carbon footprint’ which affects the cost;

• About the cultural traditions relating to food; how food production is important to particular countries;

• How diet affects our health and well being;

• To make accurate measurements and calculate costs of food and ingredients;

• To develop basic food technology skills and follow recipes;

• To collaborate as a team, deciding on strengths, weaknesses and interests of team members;

• How to write letters for a range of purposes both formally and informally.
