Miss Clay’s Class 2016-2017
Focus: Geography, History and D.T.
This half term we will be linking our work to the topic Chocywoccydoodah.
Below is a list of what we will be doing as a class this half term.
As writers, we will be reading the story ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ by Roald Dahl. We will be using lots of descriptive language to write both character and setting descriptions. We will also be writing diary entries and letters as characters from the story.
As geographers, we will be learning about where cacao beans are grown in the world and the trade routes that chocolate takes around the world.
As Designers, we are going to be carrying out our own market research at school to understand what makes young people buy chocolate and then we will look at packaging and advertising used to market chocolate. This will help us to design and create our very own branded chocolate bar.
As historians, we will be learning all about where the history of chocolate began with the Mayans and how it has become the sweet treat craved by so many today.
As scientists, we will be comparing materials according to whether they are solids, liquids or gases. We will carry out investigations into how different materials change when they are heated or cooled- particularly looking at the effects of meting and cooling different types of chocolate.
Other areas of the curriculum we will be looking at are: FRENCH - Clothes and weather
P.E - Dance and Invasion Games
