Welcome back Cedar Class
This term our topic is...
'How has conflict affected people in the past and present?'
In English, we will be reading the book 'The Boy At The Back of The Class', this will be our main class book. Miss Pagden is really looking forward to sharing this book with you. We will also look at extracts from The Unforgotten Coat’ and ‘The Day War Came’. We will be using these texts to help us with our writing.
In History and Geography, we will be learning about the 'Ancient Mayans and The History of Chocolate'.We will begin by working out who the Mayans were, where they were located and why they were important. We will learn about Mayan culture- including Mayan gods. After half term, we will move on to understanding how the Mayans discovered chocolate, we will then look at the history of chocolate. In geography, we will look at where chocolate originated and how chocolate is different around the world. We will also learn about the conflict within chocolate production. We will learn what fair trade is and the impact this has on countries and people.
This term, we will be taking part in forest schools every Tuesday. We are hoping to be able to go on our residential trip to Dalesdown, I will send our more information about this shortly.
I have uploaded a more detailed guide of the topics we will be covering for the rest of this term and the summer term below. I have also included an optional Mayan homework grid. Remember all information and letters are shared through seesaw.
