Current topics - Spring Term 2018

Year 3 - Stone Age to Iron Age

Our Spring topic sees us step back in time to the Stone Age era where we will delve into the life of prehistoric man.  We will take inspiration for our writing from a range of key texts including 'Ug' by Raymond Briggs and 'Stone Age Boy' by Satoshi Kitamura.  We will also become archaeologists during a week long Mantle of the Expert style learning experience that will culminate in a trip to Brighton Museum.

Year 4  - Roamin' Romans 

During our Spring topic we will be exploring the Ancient Romans' efforts at European domination!  Our key texts are Escape from Pompeii (about a Roman boy's efforts to avoid certain death at the hands of Mount Vesuvius) and The Journal of Iliona, a diary written from the perspective of a Roman slave.  We will also be creating our own Roman busts from clay, and designing and producing mosaics.  During our 'Mantle of the Expert' activities we will be preparing a banquet to celebrate the visit of Caesar!
