There were many questioned asked about trains; we will explore this further throughout of topic.
We will use lots of non-fiction texts to research the different areas of transport, including finding out about transport used in the past. We will also use fiction texts including 'The Train Ride' and 'The Way Back Home' to inspire the children's imaginations within their work.
