Our Learning

Please use the links below to learn more about the topics we will be learning about this year.

Autumn - Monarchs
We travel through time in this history topic which gives us an overview of some significant British monarchs since 1066 before focusing on the reign of Henry VIII. Using drama, we find out how the Tudors came to power and how they maintained their rule. Then, we learn about different aspects of Henry VIII’s reign, including significant social and religious changes. During a trip to Hampton Court, we find out more about the six wives of Henry VIII and what kind of king he was.

Spring - Changes in Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age
Now we go back in time to the origins of man in the United Kingdom. We follow the path of the hunter gathers they foraged for food using only the most basic stone tools. As homosapiens travelled forward in time through the Mesolithic period and into the Neolithic period we will look at how the Stone Age man’s life changed. He became a settler, farming his land and building houses. We will look at where these early settlements happened and consider the reasons why these sites were chosen.

Summer - Disasters
In this explosive Geography topic, we discover how natural disasters, such as volcanoes and earthquakes, occur and the impact they can have on the environment and humans. This leads on to work investigating the role people can play in preventing and worsening disasters. We also continue to develop our map reading skills and locational knowledge by researching where disasters happen and why they are more likely to happen in certain areas of the world.


In place of in-school learning meetings for this year, please watch our video presentations from the class teachers.
