Class 4

Food Glorious food

 

Our work this term is one close to Class 4`s Heart! Food Glorious food will take us around the world, looking at traditions, cultural choices and of course our own favorite  foods. We will continue our journey investigating food miles, looking at where ingredients come from and which foods we export, from the United Kingdom.

In Science we will be learning about different materials and how they can be changed by heating or cooling. We will be looking at reversible and irreversible  materials and how we use this understanding when we cook.

Our topic this term is A Kingdom United.
