Elm Autumn 2

During Autumn 2 we will be learning about the history of transport and the development of transport across the ages. The children will learn about the importance of the invention of the wheel, boats, train travel and flight and the reasons why people needed to be able to travel – whether for work or for an adventure!

In English, the children will follow the story of young fisherwoman Erin Pike lives with her mum and their dog. One day Erin sneaks onto her mum’s fishing boat which leads her on an adventure to finding out all about the secrets of the Black Rock. Her adventure in the underwater world encompasses an environmental message which will be further explored in Science where the children will learn about animals are their habitats.

In Art, the children will be exploring the skills of collage and will be creating their own transport collages to compliment their work in History.
