Autumn

This term, in English, we have explored children’s classic fiction, such as The Jungle Book.  We will be looking at the author, Rudyard Kipling, and focusing on his use of animal dialogue.

The topic in Class 5 this term is Victorians, which we will be investigating through Geography, History,  and Art and Design.  We are planning some exciting trips to investigate changes in our local area since Victorian times.  This links to Local History and Manchester’s Cottonopolis.

We will, of course, be continuing to learn French, play brass instruments and enjoy various sports with our PE coach.

During our Religious Education lessons, we have learnt about The Creation Story and Adam and Eve, which are in the first book of the Bible, Genesis.
