Autumn Term 2023/24
Our topic this term is linked to Lancashire and the local cotton industry. In History we will be learning all about the history of Lancashire's spinning and weaving heratage that made the North of England a power house in the Industrial revolution. We will be making learning relevant by looking at the period through the eyes of a child working in a cotton mill. Learning will be enriched trhough a trip to Quarry Bank Mill to see a real working mill and experience life in a Lancashire Mill Town.
In art we will be looking how L S Lowry was inspired by Industrial Northern England to create his artwork. In Design Technology we will putting our learning to good use and creating a textile partchwork quilt. This will link with our PSHE unit, 'All about me' because each patchwork will be designed to tell a story about each one of us!
