First Stop......Paris!!!

To kick start our topic about Around the world in 80 days we had a visit from our very own Victorian gentlemen, Phileas Fogg, who bared a remarkable resemblance to our very own Mr Laird!

Mr Laird told us all about the bet Phileas Fogg’s had made at the Reform Club and asked the children to help plan a journey for him around the world, through all the continents in 80 days. 
 
The children then set to work planning the journeys in groups, and they wrote a persuasive letter to him to encourage him to choose their particular routes. We then used the beginning of the story to create a story map to enable us to retell the story. Next we began to change one thing to make the story different. Our next challenge is beginning on Monday, when we will begin the countdown of 80 days to travel around the world. Throughout the term we will be visiting all the continents of the world and learning about the art, culture and history of the countries in those places.
