This term in Funky Foods the children have been looking at packaging and advertising. They have explored the different types of packing available and the impact this has on the environment and the KS2 children have looked at the tricks the media uses when selling us products.
Alongside this they have looked into where our food comes from and how it is grown. With Year 5 visiting the Bohemia Walled Garden to plant for vegetables and herbs.
Year 1 created some delicious Rainbow Fruit Kebabs and a still lemonade
To finish off our learning about ‘Light and Dark’ the children made their own shadow puppets. Most of the children chose to make a character out of Iron Man and tell the story. We had a great time and learnt how opaque objects block the light causing a shadow. The children went on to learn how they could make the shadow larger and smaller by moving the torch.
To introduce our new learning journey this week we started by learning how to take down notes and then we used this skill to write and draw about the surprise packages on our desks. Some of the items seemed very strange and we are still unsure of what they are.
We are building on our knowledge of the Stone Age and are looking forward to learning about the Iron Age.
