This half term, our topic is 'Allotment'. It's a really exciting topic where the children will be learning all about setting up their own business and making their money grow. We will be learning about where our food comes from, what grows where (in Britain and around the world), life cycles of different creatures (come and see our meal worms in their habitats and our worm world to see the worms burrowing through the soil), habitats and food chains, seed dispersal and of course enterprising (how to set up a business, track profit and see what we can make! It's a science based topic so we will be doing lots of investigations including looking carefully at eggs, investigating life cycles and seeing how seeds travel. Parents will be invited to come and see us at the Dukinfield festival in July where we will have our topic work out and our homemade wares for sale. It's a competition amongst other schools so there will be a 'Dragons Den' type activity where we will compete amongst other schools!
