We have been investigating where our food comes from. Many of us did not know that foods that we buy from our local supermarket have often been on a long journey to reach us. We enjoyed tasting many different foods from around the world and then investigated where in the world they are grown before making the journey to our plates. We annotated our world maps to show where the different foods originated from. We also discussed why the UK has a good climate for growing certain foods like potatoes, but that it is not great for other foods.
We have been learning about the journeyof a river from its source to the mouth. We created models using plasticene to show the different features of a river.
We have been learning all about maps. We used Digimap to locate Chorley and our school and homes.
