We worked in Mantle groups to come up with ideas for selling items on a stall at a Victorian Fayre, with a focus on eco-friendly products and an awareness of carbon footprints! We tried to make sure that our products were locally sourced and that we used recycled materials where possible. We had to try and make a profit! We calculated the cost of rent, wages, materials and advertising amongst other things and then took these costs away from our total of items that would need to be sold to see whether we had made a profit or loss!
We have discussed how we travel to school and how this has an impact on the environment. Please follow the link above to see our class block graph. We discussed the results and ways we could help the environment by possibly walking to school if we live close enough.
The children in our class think that we should try to walk to school as often as we can to help the environment. Click on the above link to see our block graph on how we travel to school. We made the block graph as a class and discussed the results.
We thoroughly enjoyed our walk to the library last week. We listened carefully to Mrs Morris read us ‘Handa’s Surprise’ as part of our work on human rights. After the story, we were treated to a drink and a snack in the Community Centre
According to the World Health Organisation 2/3’s of the World’s children do not have enough food to eat. 1/3 of the World’s Children either has enough food or too much food to eat.
We discussed our favourite foods and drew them onto paper plates. Mrs Fielding had put a cloth on the table and explained that only 1/3 of the children were going to eat their feast at the table. The remaining 2/3’s of children would eat a bowl of rice.
The children picked either a meal ticket or rice ticket from a lucky dip
We discussed that there should be enough food in the world for everyone. However, just in this feast, the world’s food is not fairly shared and we tried to imagine how the children who only had a few grains of rice would feel.
Mrs Fielding bought some oranges into school. We tasted the oranges and investigated where they came from. We found out from the label that they were from Brazil. We found Brazil on the globe and we found out that it had a tropical climate.
We thoroughly enjoyed our sports afternoon on Wednesday! The children in Y5 and Y6 organised the event themselves. The ice-creams were a real treat- thank you to Friends of School for providing the funds to buy them!
