February 2022

In geography, we have been exploring global trade connections at an international scale and local supply chains. We also looked at the inherent inequalities in trade relationships, resource availability, manufacturing capability and development. We then found ways in which we can improve the equity of trade, and ways in which exploitation may always be a part of commodities. To celebrate Fairtrade, we had a tea party, where we brought along Fairtrade certified products.

Today we had a visit from Severn Trent Water. We learnt how Water is the source of life and it comes in many forms, and is used in many ways.

Daffodil Dissection

In Science we have begun our new topic for this half term: Plants. In year 5 and 6 we focus on how plants reproduce. We have begun our learning by dissecting a daffodil. This children carefully worked in pairs to


reveal all of the hidden parts. We discussed their properties and recapped previous learning. We are now ready to learn more.




As part of our science learning we have been looking at the unit Forces. In this unit we have recapped our prior learning and explored this unit with lots of practical learning. Here we are experimenting with friction and how it can be affected
