Term 6 - Where does chocolate come from?
Welcome back to sunny Term 6!This may be the last term of the school year but it is a busy one with lots of events to look forward to such as sports day and beach day. This term we will be exploring the delicious topic of chocolate. We will be learning about where food comes from, how to prepare a healthy dish, looking at why chocolate comes from Brazil and not Hythe and designing and creating our own chocolate bar wrapping.
During the first couple of weeks we will be looking at Chocolate cake by Michael Rosen. We will look at reciting and performing the original poem. Following on from this we will be writing our own chocolate cake poem using Michael Rosen's style. Look out for week 3 where will be performing our poems in the school's poetry slam!
After this we will be looking at one of my favourite stories Charlie and the Chocolate factory! We will be looking at descriptions and making our own reports about Mr Wonka's chocolate factory.
This term in maths we will be exploring capacity, telling the time to the nearest 5 minutes on an analogue clock and re-vising on the different calculations we have learnt throughout this year.
PE this term will be every Monday morning and Friday afternoon.
We are lucky enough to have a tennis coach come and teach us new tennis skills every Monday morning. On Friday afternoons we will be practising for sports day. Both tennis and cricket will be played outside as often as possible. Please can all children have their PE kit in school at all times clearly labelled.
