Friday 9th July
In year 5 we have been thinking about 'What changes can we make to our lifestyles that will have a positive impact on our global footprint for the fashion industry?' Therefore, we have been making bags from recycled material. First, we designed our bags, then we made a prototype out of newspaper to check our dimensions and used this as our pattern. We have found sewing a challenge, but we have risen to it and our teachers have been very proud of our problem-solving skills. We hope to complete our bags by the end of term.
In other Global learning lessons we have been looking at the work involved in making a t-shirt - The Global Supply Chain. Children have been discussing the amount different people earn within the chain and how some people are struggling to survive and live on their wages!
We have also finished our Power of Reading book 'Way Home' about the journey of a boy and a cat. The children are now planning their own journey story in the style of this book. They have some great ideas and i can't wait to read them all next week.
