This Term's reading book used in Literacy- Street Child by Berlie Doherty
Kent Life Victorian Trip
So far this term, the children have been designing and creating their own cereal bars which they are hoping to sell to a local farm shop. They are working in groups and have created companies with a company name, logo and slogan. In Literacy, they have written job applications to apply for different jobs within their companies. This week, they have also begun creating radio adverts to persuade people to buy their products. Once the cereal bars have been made, they will be packaged using the companies designs and a sample will be sent off to the farm shop along with a persuasive letter.
Here is a batch of cereal bars that we made in class.
