Learning log

This week your task builds on the RE work we have been doing with Rev Malaika from Peace Mala. I would like you to describe your favourite place and how you feel when you are there.

This is mine:

I have chosen this place, because I got married in the hotel you can see in the background, and seeing it brings back many happy memories of time with friends and family.

Food miles

Sorry I’ve posted this a bit late, we’ve had a few technical problems with our blogs which has prevented me from posting.

We had a great lesson yesterday researching food miles and contacting all sorts of people via email and twitter. We have now started to get some responses back. Here are some websites which contain great information about food miles:

Tesco
M&S
The Co-operative – go to page 6.
Innocent drinks
Ocado
Brakes (one of the school’s food suppliers)

I’ll post any more links I find.

This week I have asked you to think about all the different ways we use the internet. You could d a mind map or a spider diagram to help. Also think about the different ways we access the internet – not just through computers.

We also talked about Tim Berners-Lee who invented the internet. Here are some sites with some information about him:

Tim Berners-Lee’s own website
BBC history
Encyclopaedia Britannica

Reminders…

A couple of reminders as we head towards Easter:

– Please make sure you have your PE kit in school. This needs to be a plain white or Lowerplace blue t-shirt with black shorts/leggings and pumps.
– Reading books are changed every week, but we can only change them if books are brought into school! If your child’s book has not been changed, please check they are bringing it in.
– Swimming will continue every week for the rest of term (and in the summer).
– Learning logs are issued each Friday and due back on the following Thursday.

Thank you for your continued support.
