Welcome to Gandhi class!
Welcome back to school! We are so pleased to see you back in school - we missed you!
This year our class is named 'Gandhi' class.
Mohandas Gandhi lived in India 100 years ago. He fought against the British rule of his country as he wanted India to rule itself. Gandhi didn't believe in fighting, he believed protests could be demonstrated peacefully and showed others how these actions could work.
There are many famous quotes from Gandhi that people still reflect on today.
This one is displayed on our classroom door.
Be the change you want
to see in the world
Mahatma (which means'great soul') Gandhi
This term we are exploring the topic
Tuck in and enjoy a yummy journey of discovery, tasting fantastic fruits, venerable vegetables and tantalizing treats! Work up an appetite with delicious stories about food, have fun with a vegetable orchestra or become a fruity sculptor. Find exciting recipes to read — and write your own too.
Then get busy in the kitchen making tasty dishes from across the world and discover how good food helps you grow fit and strong. Be a whizz and create your own scrumdiddlyumptious smoothie for Squeezy Joe and his team of fruity friends. And here’s food for thought—if you are what you eat… what does that make YOU?
During our topic we will explore a range of texts including recounts, recipes and instructions, non-sense poetry, non-chronological reports and adverts. With each genre we will identify its features and use them to create our own texts.

VIPERS (vocabulary, inference, predictions, explanations, retrieval and sequencing and summarising will be part of each lesson.
