Week 1 - As we started the time of Lent, we attended a Lenten Mass held by Father Arbo on Ash Wednesday. We continued with our topic of time in Maths and were looking at converting time into data by estimating time. In English, we were introduced to the non-fiction book 'A Planet Full of Plastic' by Neal Layton. We decided to go for a plastic search around our school area and disgustingly picked up 168 pieces of plastic!! In Art, we started food technology and created the eatwell guide with either chalk or materials. In Science, we linked into Art and created a plate of food for an animals diet using the eatwell guide to support us.
