Our topic this term is:


Who will we meet in our Time Machine?


Our topic will begin with learning about our local history and researching into familiar places such as West Park and other Long Eaton locations.  We will then focus on significant historical people and events, including Florence Nightingale, Roald Dahl, Samuel Pepys, the Moon Landing, the Gunpowder Plot and the Great Fire of London.  Our topics will be woven throughout our literacy, history and geography work, and will also link to our maths and science where possible. 


Our class book is: 


Tilly and the Time Machine

by Adrian Edmondson


Tilly is seven and a half, and is about to make history!


When Tilly's dad builds a time machine in the shed, there's only

one place she really wants to go - back to her sixth birthday party.


But then something goes wrong! Tilly's dad gets stuck in the past and

only she can save him... Will they make it back in time for tea?
