This week we have begun exploring the new class novel: Around the World in 80 Days. In this book there are a number of different features which have linked to both English, History and Geography lessons.
English: In English we have been reading and understanding the novel, when it was set and the differences in the world from then and now. We also role played different parts of the story.
