Autumn One Topic - Blue Abyss

Grab your wetsuit! This term we're going deep into an underwater world of incredible coral and mysterious sea creatures.  Our topic covers lots of Science, Geography, History, Art and Design, PE, music and PSHE objectives.

Flippers on? Snorkel Ready?  Let's head into the blue abyss ...

Autumn Two - I am Warrior!

I am Warrior! I am strong, brave and powerful. Meet me in battle. Draw your sword, wield your axe and challenge me if you dare. Invade and attack. Romans versus Celts, the fight is on. Discover warring Britain: meet Claudius, Boudicca and Julius Caesar and find out what the Romans did for us. Get ready for Gladiator School and learn alongside Spartacus and Spiculus, brave fighters of the Roman Colosseum. When all that battling makes you hungry, relax, lie back and feast yourself on dormice and grapes, or perhaps a roasted swan sprinkled with nuts?

Spring One -Raiders and Traders

Big and strong, powerful and brave, the Saxons wave their battle axes and brandish their swords as they begin to invade Britain’s shores. Sail back to the Dark Ages, where battles were rife and fear reigned. Find out about the lives of the Saxons, including how they lived and where they came from. Meet the bloodthirsty Vikings from Scandinavia – never before had such terror swept the land. Make a Saxon sword or a Viking brooch and decorate it with intricate patterns. Choose to be a Saxon or Viking and trade your crafty goods, but let’s keep it cool. We don’t want a fight breaking out. Are you ready to shine a light on the dangerous and deadly Dark Ages?

Spring Two - European Neighbours


Are you ready to go on an exciting adventure across Europe? Grab your passport, as we explore the people, countries, capitals of this amazing continent. We'll research the physical and human features, and some of the worlds most famous landmarks from this amazing part of the globe, as well as taking a look into the history of some of the countries and cultures. Lets go!

Summer Term One - Road Trip USA!

Buckle up, sunglasses on. We’re going on a road trip across the good old US of A. Flying from London Gatwick, and landing at JFK airport New York, it’s time to explore the sights and sounds of the Big Apple. Use your map skills to navigate your way around some of its most famous landmarks and send a postcard home to ask the question ‘Do you wish you were here?’ Learn how to send an email to book a day trip or reserve a room. Make sure you ask the important questions ‘Does your hotel have a pool? Is there 24-hour room service?’ Meet the Iroquois tribe; Native Americans with amazing customs and traditions. Then plan a bespoke road trip for Mr Smith and his family of four. They want to spend three weeks in the sunshine. It’s going to be a long ride. Put the roof down and let the wind blow through your hair. We’re off.

Summer Term Two  -  Our Changing World!

What can we do to reduce deforestation? How can we reduce, reuse and recycle waste? How can we generate and use renewable energy? How can we look after our oceans?


Get ready to stop human-made devastation and , if we can, change to live in a more sustainable way. This can hopefully reverse the damage caused to the planet. Every single one of us has a responsibility to look after earth - for ourselves and future generations.


We will learn how we can all play a part, however small, in repairing the destruction.


Since we are encouraging pupils to use the internet more than ever for home learning we must, as adults, try to ensure they remain safe online. We encourage you to monitor their internet use regularly and carefully. If you would like any more information about this then visit the Parent Tab on our homepage.
