Meet the Teacher 2023

Summer Term - Britain at War

In the Britain at War project, you will learn about the main causes of the First World War and which countries were the major players. You will investigate why so many men volunteered to fight and then sequence the events at the start of the war. Using various sources of evidence, you will learn about life in the trenches and the consequences of new weaponry. You will listen to first-hand accounts of life on the home front and evaluate the impact of war on everyday life. They will also discover the events that led to the Allied Powers’ victory and the consequences of the Treaty of Versailles. You will also learn about the causes and main events of the Second World War. You will find out how Britain prepared itself for war and the war’s impact on civilian life. You will learn about the Battle of Britain and how it proved to be a key turning point for the Allied Powers. You will also hear about Anne Frank and discover what her story tells us about the treatment of Jewish people by the Nazi Party. You will research the causes and consequences of the end of the Second World War and investigate the legacy of the wars in Britain. Closer to home, you will research the life of a local First World War hero who sacrificed their life fighting for Britain. You will also investigate the legacy of these global conflicts in the post-war period.

Spring Term - Frozen Kingdoms

 

In the Frozen Kingdoms project, you will learn about the regions of the Arctic and Antarctic. You will learn about the similarities and differences between these two regions, including the climate, landscape and natural resources. You will learn how to use grid references, lines of latitude and longitude, contour lines and symbols to identify the geographical locations of the Arctic and Antarctic, and how these, along with the tilt of the Earth, affect day length and warmth. You will investigate polar oceans to learn how they differ from other oceans on Earth and how climate change increases Earth's temperature and leads to rising sea levels. You will learn about the indigenous people of the Arctic, including how their lives have changed over time, and about the positives and negatives of tourism in Antarctica. You will also learn about classifying animals, animal adaptations and evolution, and polar exploration and discovery.

Autumn 2 - Darwin's Delights

 

We’re off on an exciting expedition with Charles Darwin and his crew on HMS Beagle. Can you trace his route across the vast ocean? Stop at the magical Galápagos Islands to see the amazing species that helped Charles Darwin to develop his theory of evolution. See how animals adapt to their environments over time and meet some of the world’s greatest explorers. Let’s set sail.

Darwin's Delight Wow Day - Strawberry DNA

Autumn 1 - Revolution

 

Are you listening? What is 27 plus 45? Come on, faster now. We haven’t got all day. Find out about super strict schools by travelling back in time to a Victorian classroom. Make sure that you’re on your best behaviour though, as punishments are unquestionably terrible. Discover a time when great minds thought new thoughts and ingenious inventors created so many things that we take for granted today: the electric light bulb, the telephone and the first flushing toilet. Let’s forge ahead to research a time when Victoria was Queen and Albert was Prince Consort, and when some people lived in slums while others prospered. Full steam ahead to the Victorian age.
