Cooking this term will also involve the students in creating their own icecream amongst other things. They will also be off to the Tip Top factory to learn how icecream is produced on a large scale. Also this term the students will make models characters to illustrate classic children's books. No art this term as the afternoons will be spent learning about Planet Earth and Beyond in Science.
