Mr McCracken 



In the Autumn term, we will be using Ian Fleming’s Chitty Chitty Bang Bang as a stimulus for our English lessons. 


During Maths, we will be looking at ratio, geometry and algebra. In our arithmetic sessions we will be working on our basic skills using Fluent in Five. 

Within our wider curriculum, our History topic is the Industrial Revolution and how it affected Lancashire. Our Geography topic will be rivers with a focus on flooding in Croston. In RE we will be looking at Islam and Christianity. Our French lessons will be focussed on daily routines.
