History & Geography
History and Geography are studied through themed topic work and we endeavour to ensure that the children are directly involved in planning for these topics and identifying what they would like to find out. Children have the opportunity to develop historical and geographic skills, using a range of resources.
First-hand experience is gained through field studies and planned environmental visits. Furthermore, our local and geographical context is used to enhance learning whenever possible.
Year 5 had a great afternoon exploring Victorian school life, Victorian toys and Victorian clothing. We made paper bangers, Victorian sponge cakes, illusion spinners and a cup and ball. Boys and girls sat separately and completed different jobs, just like in Victorian times. We wrote on slate, listened to the bible and reflected on our learning this topic! Well done Year 5.
The invasion of Britain
Year 4 explored the Roman invasion through art, debates and music. We discussed how the Celts felt about the invasion and how the Romans felt. We then explored the mood of the invasion through art and the composition of our own invasion song.
Year 3's Stone age fossils and cave art
Year 4's Romans vs Celts activity afternoon
In Year 4, we had a look at Celtic customs and compared the Romans. We then made our own Roman and Celtic shields, wove our own tapestry, answered questions comparing the two civilisations and asked questions. We worked brilliantly as a team.
Year 3 did an Archaeological dig. Here are some photos of what they found.
