Last half term our topic was The Industrial Revolution. We studied the impact this point in history has on our lives today, looking specifically at cotton mills, canals and transport. The children went on a trip to the extraordinary Cromford Mills in Derbyshire, the first mill build in the world at the start of The Industrial Revolution. The children experienced first hand what life would have been like for them.

In English, we worked on formal letter writing, based on the book 'Journey to Jo'burg' which focuses on family's struggles during the apartheid regime in South Africa.

In Science we studies life cycles, looking particularly at plants and animals and giving children.

This half term our topic is CRIME AND PUNISHMENT
