Fabulously Fairtrade Fashion

Are you curious about clothes? Fascinated by Fairtrade? Puzzled by production? Well if so, Year 5 is the place for you because we have chosen to explore the world of fashion as their next topic!

London, New York, Milan, Paris…we’re hoping that we can add Portchester to the fashion capitals of the world! Through our Literacy sessions, we will enter the Dragons’ Den and apply our knowledge persuasive techniques to effectively convince our very wealthy investors that our fashion is the one that they should invest their hard-earned money in. We will be applying these persuasive tricks of the trade as we write our very own persuasive pitch to try and persuade the dragons to buy our brand of hats.

As part of our Geography learning in this topic, we will be exploring Fairtrade and Fairtrade cotton. We will discover where clothing from different fashion brands are made across the world and will learn about the economic links between fashion brands and the materials they are made of.

In Art, Year 5 will be introduced to Phillip Treacy and will learn about the hats that he has designed. Inspired by his work, we will create our own hat considering our use of shape, colour, material, pattern and design to ensure that it appeals to our target audience.

For our Design and Technology learning as part of this topic, we will be researching logos that different fashion brands have used and will consider their effectiveness on the target audience. We will design and create our very own logo for our fashion brand and will sew our logo on a bag to advertise our personal fashion brand.

As part of our science learning, we will be beginning our new unit on Earth and Space. During this unit, children will get to explore the solar system, night and day and the different time zones on Earth.

Our PE days will be on a Thursday. Please can you ensure that your child is wearing their PE kit when they come into school on Thursday.

Homework will be given on a Monday and will be due in the following Monday. Your child has also been given a pink reading card to bring home for you to sign when they have read at home. We love hearing about the books they are enjoying at home.

 

Thank you for your continued support.
