This week Linmere have had a themed approach to their work under the theme of Fairtrade. This is aimed at raising the issues of Fairtrade through various subjects whilst linking with our International Schools Theme. We have used our current literacy unit of debate and persuasion as a vehicle to open debates on Fairtrade and the issues that surround it for all invested parties. The children have produced some lovely scrap books showcasing their work and exploring the products and their journeys.


On Tuesday morning we were also lucky enough to take part in an Olympic Sculpture Workshop. This aimed to develop our skills in technology and we worked independently and then in teams to produce sculptures representing key Olympic sports. We also learnt how to construct tripods, tetrahedrons and banana trusses in the process!

We also spent a lovely morning in St Peter's Church, learning about it's history and the features of an Anglican Church.

The end of the week was just as busy, continuing our Fairtrade theme making chocolate truffles and finishing our augmented reality iPad project.
