Our next theme is called 'Plough to Plate'. We will be looking at where our food comes from, with particular links to Fairtrade and sustainability. Year 4 will also learn about how food is digested in our bodies and how teeth work. Whilst looking at different food groups, we will be exploring what makes food or drink healthy or unhealthy. In addition, we will share the exploration of food through our reading and writing. We will be making healthy snacks through our DT sessions and exploring artists who have drawn/painted food.
