WHY HAVE COTTON WHEN YOU CAN HAVE SILK?

This half term and next term, we are going to be delving into Macclesfield's fascinating past and finding out about the Industrial Revolution. From the beginning of the Victorian age, we will track the inventions and changes, looking into how several aspects of national history are reflected in our local area. We will consider the human and physical characteristics of the area, along with the key topographical features. 

In science, we will study silk worms and observe their lifecycle. We will also investigate the different properties of silk and cotton, do experiments based on their properties and give reasons as to our conclusions based on the evidence from our results. We will present our findings in written and pictorial form.

Next, we will be looking at the origins of silk as a material and how Macclesfield ended up being a forerunner in its production. We will research Paradise Mill in Macclesfield to understand the process of the production of silk and what working conditions were like in the mills around the time of the Industrial Revolution. This will bring us onto why industrialisation was so important to Britain and to our local area particularly, including a study of changes in transport links such as canals and railways.

In RE, we will be looking at salvation and forgiveness and, after that, the Five Pillars of Islam.
