Autumn – Term 1

ID

 

IDWho do you think you are? Are you an extrovert or an introvert, a singleton, a twin or even a triplet?

Let’s discover what makes you… you!

From your fingerprints and footprints, genes and DNA, everything is unique to you. So why do you look just like Mum or Dad… or even Auntie Rose?

Explore the world of human identity and how our unique features can be used to tell us apart from others or help to solve a crime!

And remember to love being you… Why? Because there’s only one you: you’re one of a kind!


Autumn – Term 2

Frozen Kingdom

 

Frozen-KingdomWelcome to the planet’s coldest lands… vast wilds, hostile territories, incredibly beautiful yet often deadly. Take shelter from the elements or fall prey to icy winds and deepest chill. Trek bravely and valiantly across treacherous terrain to the ends of the Earth, treading deep in snow or pulled by a team of mighty sled dogs.

So wrap up well everyone and settle by the fire. I’m just going outside and may be some time…


Spring – Term 1

Revolution

 

RevolutionAre you listening, boy? What is 27 plus 45? Come on – faster now, we haven’t got all day!

Full steam ahead to the Victorian age!


Spring – Term 2

A Child’s War

And, as peace is declared, let’s get ready to celebrate. Mr Churchill says ‘It’s an unconditional surrender!’.
