What a delicious topic we have planned for this half term! We will be looking at where in the world different foods come from and locating countries on maps and globes. We will then research these foods and countries in more detail. We will be carrying out lots of scientific experiments looking at reversible and irreversible changes with food and using this knowledge to plan and carry out our own experiments. We will explore the work of the artist Georgia O’Keefe and use this as inspiration for creating our own paintings. We will also be reading the book ‘Oliver’ and collecting descriptions and ideas for writing stories with historical settings. We are looking forward to sharing what we have learned on the school page. Within this topic the children will be introduced to and use subject specific vocabulary.
I would be very grateful if you could discuss the vocabulary on the Knowledge Organisers with your child at home. Have a go at defining them and spelling them too.
