Brixton Market

This week, as part of our Black History Month celebrations, we visited Brixton market to learn about the way Afro-Caribbean culture has shaped the produce and products you can buy in our local area! We explored the other cultural influences and thought about the positive impact immigration has had in helping us to understand and respect people from different parts of the world. What did you buy that came form another country? Where did it come from? How much was it and did you get any change? Why do you think it is important to celebrate and share cultural differences?

Food Chains

This week in science we have been learning about food chains. We explored how many food chains we could make with the same producer at the start and discussed the different predators and prey that can be found in a variety of habitats. Watch the audiobook of ‘The Gruffalo’ and see if you can make a food chain using the characters in the story. Can you think of any other food chains that includes the same animals?
