This term our topic is ‘To Market! To Market!’. We will be looking at how Oswestry high street and the market has changed over time, since the 1950s to the present day. We will visit the high street and market to help us build up a picture of how shoppers shop now in comparison to 70 years ago. We will question a local resident who shopped in the 50s / 60s. We will then create a class timeline to show these changes. In geography, we will explore local weather patterns as well as different climates all over the World and we will match fruit and vegetables to each continent on a World map. In Art, we will explore the work of artists such as Giuseppe Arcimoldo and we will create a portrait of ourselves using skills and techniques practised in our sketchbooks. In Design Technology, we will explore, design, make a healthy vegetable soup and then evaluate our product. In Music, we will listen to a range of music from around the World (and sing songs linked to the topic) and will learn about the layout of an orchestra.
