Our Topic

Sow, Grow and Farm

In our topic this term, we will be using our Geography and Science skills to develop our understanding of the process of growing and producing food. Within this unit, we will be visiting the Coton allotments and also a local farm whilst also undertaking a study of farming across the world. Following this, we will be using our understanding of seasonal planting to design and develop our own recipes for fruit crumble.

The Murderer's Ape by Jakob Wegelius 


Sally Jones is an extraordinary gorilla and a brilliant ship's engineer who sails the high seas on The Hudson Queen with her loyal friend the Chief. One day the shipmates are offered a mysterious job that promises to pay big bucks, but then disaster strikes, the job goes wrong and the Chief is falsely convicted of murder. 


For Sally Jones this is the start of a grand adventure and a desperate quest to clear her friend's name. By freighter, steam train and bi-plane the intrepid ape journeys from Lisbon to Bombay and beyond in search of the truth. But powerful forces are working against her, and they will do anything to protect their own secrets...
