This is a literacy based topic which studies the classic novel, written by Jules Verne, of the journey around the world of Phileas Fogg and his companion. In this topic we will focus initially on studying the key geographical features of the United Kingdom, including making sure the children can identify and locate countries, counties, towns and cities, hills and mountains, coasts and major rivers. We will then travel further to compare many geographical features around the world. We will also introduce the children to the wilder side of the world researching the Earth’s extremes from ragging tropical storms to violent erupting volcanoes to terrifying towering tsunamis. Alongside this we explored how these affect people, communities and landscapes.

Our Monday morning Literacy session.
We got our hearts pumping!
In science we have started learning about the heart. For our first experiment we have investigated how exercise effects our pulse. We can now all find our pulse, count the beats and turn that into BPM.
We have logged our data onto a line graph, check next week to see our results!
