Our new topic is Chocolate !
In Literacy we will be writing an explanation text about how chocolate is made. We will also be using persuasive language to write an advert for a chocolate bar and, writing a poem about chocolate and other food.
Later in the term we will be researching a significant author and writing a story.
In Science we will be investigating how materials are changed by processes including squashing, bending, stretching, heating and cooling. We are looking forward to making bread, jelly, ice lollies and chocolate cakes !
In Geography we will be focusing on the journey of chocolate from where it is grown to our shops. We will be revising the names of the continents and, using maps and globes.
In the last two weeks of term we will be working in teams to design and make our own chocolate cakes and biscuits !
