Welcome to Tiptree! For this topic, we are going to learn about the local history and geography of our school's village.
In Science, we will be doing a chemistry unit about the properties and change of materials. We will investigate the chemical changes that happen when jam is made. To really understand this, we will be writing an about this.
We will learn to talk about food and drink in French and how to create and refine recipes in DT. Learning about the fruit farming in Tiptree will help build an understanding of seasonal food and by making jam we will be able to discuss how different foods contain different nutrients.
In Geography, we will learn about using field work to explore and record and present the human and physical features in our local area. We will investigate how this area has changed over time and what has influenced these changes.
