Term 1 and 2



This term we shall be starting some new and exciting topic projects this term in History, Geography, Science, Art and DT. Knowledge organisers will be attached at the bottom of this page which sum up the learning which will take place if you would like to share these with your children.


History - Dynamic Dynastics


This project teaches children about the history of ancient China, focusing primarily on the Shang Dynasty, and explores the lasting legacy of the first five Chinese dynasties, some of which can still be seen in the world today.


Geography - Investigating Our World


This essential skills and knowledge project teaches children about locating map features using a range of methods. They learn about the Prime Meridian, Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), and worldwide time zones and study interconnected climate zones, vegetation belts and biomes. Children learn about human geography and capital cities worldwide before looking at the UK motorway network and settlements. They carry out an enquiry to identify local settlement types.


Science - Forces and Mechanisms



This project teaches children about the forces of gravity, air resistance, water resistance and friction, with children exploring their effects. They learn about mechanisms, their uses and how they allow a smaller effort to have a greater effect.


Art - Taotie


This project teaches children about the significance and art of the taotie motif, including ancient and contemporary casting methods.


Art - Tints, Tones and Shades


This project teaches children about colour theory by studying the colour wheel and exploring mixing tints, shades and tones. They learn about significant landscape artworks and features of landscapes before using this knowledge to create landscape paintings.


DT - Moving Mechanisms


This project teaches children about pneumatic systems. They experiment with pneumatics before designing, making and evaluating a pneumatic machine that performs a useful function.



Creating Artwork based on The Dot

Creating parachutes for our Science Experiment

After weeks of practice, we put on a ukulele show for our parents

We had a science visitor who taught us about circuits and we created buzzer games

We had an amazing Chinese Dynasties Wow Day based on our topic!

We learnt about pulleys and experimented with creating our own
