Autumn Term 1 -

George's Marvellous Medicine

 

For the first half of term we are learning about the author Roald Dahl and his book 'George's Marvellous Medicine'. We shall be using the text in guided reading, discovering some fantastic vocabulary and drawing in the style of Quentin Blake, the illustrator of many Roald Dahl books. Our science topic is 'digestion and teeth' where we shall be looking in detail about how each part of the system works, and planning some experiments and observations on the effects of food on enamel and the body.

 

Here are some website links for our topic:
