It is now term 5 and we have very much settled back into school life. This term we will be looking to explore the topic 'Sow, Grow and Farm', this is a Geography based topic. We will learn about allotments in the UK and how the government encouraged people to have these in order to support food rationing during the Second World War.


We will have the opportunity to learn about farming in the UK and the techniques used in modern farming, including the challenges that farmers face. We will explore the benefits of eating seasonally and about the pros and cons of importing food. We will also learn about world farming and how the different climate zones affect where different foods can be grown


We will learn about food webs and animal life cycles, including how living things are dependent on one another within a habitat. We will investigate the different ways that plants reproduce and will dissect flowering plants to identify the different structures.
