Summer Term 2022
Summer 2 - The French Revolution
In this history centred topic, pupils have learnt about the causes and events which led to the collapse of the monarchy and the development of a new political system in France in 1799. Pupils have crafted their own Fleur-de-lis themed pin cushion within sewing as part of the DT curriculum and have written an amazing story based on The Scarlet Pimpernel book by Baroness Orczy.
Summer 1 - The Industrial Revolution in Britain
Pupils discovered how George Stephenson became 'the father of the railways' in the 1830s and designed their own film set to record what it might have been like to witness The Rocket steam engine for the first time. Pupils also discovered how Isambard Kingdom Brunel revolutionised how tunnels and bridges were built with his engineering skills, as well as building their own replica of Crystal Palace which housed The Great Exhibition in 1851.
Spring Term 2022
Spring 2 - Discoveries in space!
This half-term pupils have been learning about the planets in our solar system as well as reading 'War of the Worlds' by H.G.Wells. We have designed and built our own tripod spaceships inspired by the book. In English, pupils have done very well at writing their own alternative story beginnings for an alien invasion. Our art, inspired by the artist V. Kush, has been focused on using mixed-media artwork to depicts an alien landscape.
DT - Tripods
