Autumn Term – Friend or Foe?

Values: Peace and Hope

Throughout the Autumn term, children will take part in a wide variety of experiences to help them learn more about life during World War 2: evacuation, the blitz and air raids, propaganda, code breaking, espionage and rationing.

Spring Term – Ages Ago

Values: Respect and Forgiveness

Throughout the Spring term, children will travel back through time to experience life in the Stone Age, Iron Age and Bronze Age. Children will discover how the culture, society and beliefs of these Britons affected life in Britain and use the rich history from these times to inspire their writing.

Summer Term – Lights! Camera! Action!

Values: Community and Faith

Throughout the Summer term, children will study the history of animation and develop skills in animation, film making, film direction and film production.
