SPRING TERM 2018
Welcome to Spring Term 2018.
This term is all about Chocolate!
We will be learning about the life of a great local significant person, George Cadbury and appreciating the achievements of his life.
We will discover where cocoa comes from and with this will learn all about simple food chains and the habitat of a rain forest and will be able to name the continents and oceans of our world.
Our chocolate journey will take us from bean to bar where we will learn how to write a non chronological report about our discoveries.
Our fiction reading text is Charlie and the Chocolate factory, with this story we will be enjoying plenty of reading and writing opportunities.
