Welcome Back to Autumn Term 2019
I will be planning topics a bit differently, topics will now be mini topics and last 3-4 weeks. I will notify you of the new topic via the Class Dojo page so if you aren’t already signed up and need help let me know. The first topic is “Food Glorious Food” We will be looking at fruit and veg, how it is grown, farmed and purchased. The children will be setting up a grocery shop in class using real fruit and veg in the final week.
Any resources you may want to lend the class I would be grateful (all items will be returned.) This may include weighing scales, cookbooks, any leftover fruit and veg you may have, leaflets or magazines you may pick up while shopping.
It’s difficult during the morning to get to the door, but I’m always available at the end of the day if you need to speak to me alternatively message me on Class Dojo.

Next term's topic is GLOBAL GOURMET.
This project has a food and design technology focus and teaches the children about the different types of food from around the world. They will also create a restaurant style website showing food from across the world.
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.
Ideas for learning together at home…
Visit your local store and make a list of all the ‘Fair Trade’ products you can find on the shelves.
Find an interesting recipe (from the Internet?) from another country and cook/eat it together at home; write a review. Make an eye-catching recipe cards to tempt others!
