Mrs Collins, Miss Bray and I are very excited for the new year at East Bierley. This term we are going on an adventure, our topic is based on ‘Around the world in 80 days’ but it’s not necessarily about Phileas Fogg!

In English we will be learning how to improve our sentence writing using conjunctions and adjectives. We will explore stories from other cultures and tales about the world. We will write postcards and short stories.

In Science we will be investigating plants and animals from around the world, learning about their habitats, their offspring and their habitats.

In Art and DT we will be starting to understand the process of ‘design, make, and evaluate’ and will be making modes of transport for our adventure around the world. We will become artists taking inspiration from artists from different countries.

In Geography we will be learning mapping skills. We will investigate our journey to school and draw maps of the local area. You might see us out and about in the village using our compasses.
