Current Topic:  Road Trip USA


Buckle up, sunglasses on - we're going on a road trip across the good old US of A!

Flying from London Gatwick, and landing at JFK airport New York, it's time to explore the sights and sounds of the Big Apple.  Use you map skills to navigate your way around some of its most famous landmarks and send a post card  home to ask the question 'Do you wish you were here?'  Meet the Iroquois tribe; Native Americans with amazing customs and traditions.  Then plan a bespoke road trip for Mr Carroll and his family of four, they want to spend 3 weeks in the sun.  It's going to be a long ride, put the roof down and let the wind blow through your hair - we're off!

This topic will be taught through: English, History, DT, Art, Computing, Geography and PSHE.

RE Topics - Following the Come and See scheme.
