During this half term in topic, we have found out all about settlements. We discussed how early settlements were chosen and created and found out about the meaning of names of towns and cities in the UK.

We focussed on the nearby town of Saltaire, learning about Sir Titus Salt and his reasons for creating the town.

We finished off by working with a partner to create a plan of our own settlement, thinking about the position of different things, such as, houses, shops, factories etc.


In English we learned about Edward Lear and his nonsense poems. We read several limericks, learning one off by heart and performing it to the class.


We also worked in pairs to create our own imaginary character and a nonsense poem to describe it.
