History and Geography
In the autumn term topic work focuses on British history - helping to build a picture of Britain and locate significant landmarks across the country.
Key Stage 1 focus on events both beyond living memory (the Gunpowder Plot) and within living memory (Children in the War).
The children look at the lives of significant individuals and investigate what life was like in England in another time.
Key Stage 2 goes further back in time to learn how British history has developed and changed through the influence of overseas invaders and settlers.
Alongside class work the children are also exposed to important historical events, such as Queen Elizabeth's record as the longest reigning monarch, Remembrance Day and Black History Month.
