During Literacy the children have started reading descriptions and unpicking the language used to paint a vivid picture in the readers mind. Watch this space for our own amazing descriptions next week. 


In Mission the children have been finding out which countries produce what food, when it is harvested and how it is harvested. We couldn't believe how far some of our food has traveled.
