Years 3 and 4

Year A

Stone Age, Bronze Age

Take a moment to step outside and stand quietly and still.  Turn off all your technology and try to forget the modern world.  Imagine this place 5000 years ago.  What would you have seen?  Head back to prehistoric times (it’s a long time ago) to gather berries and hunt down dinner.  Learn how the people of Britain developed over thousands of years from the Stone Age to the Roman invasion.

Work as a tribe to build a seasonal monument to celebrate the coming of spring.  Then sit quietly and reflect, waiting for the sunrise.

What tribal tales will you have to tell?

A World of Pure Imagination

Stone Age, Bone Age (Tribal Tales)

Come with me and you will be in a World of Pure Imagination! Welcome to the amazing magical world of potions and their properties... explore sensations as we journey through the valley of different sounds.  Now scientists, beware!  There are some powerful and deadly potions out there – dangerous, unpredictable or plain tragic.  Ssh... what’s that noise?  A bash?  A crash?  A shake, rattle or a low, bass hum?  Which do you prefer... an acoustic singer or a booming brass band?  A solitary voice singing sweetly and quietly or a magnificent choir lifting a roof?  Let your eyes feast upon the wonders of Van Gogh and his Starry, Starry night!

Traders and Raiders

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.  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…?

Year B

Roman Around

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 the Celts, the fight is on...Discover warring Britain: meet Claudius, Boudicca and Julius Caesar, and find out what the Romans did for us. 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.  Get ready to explore our Roman heritage within Lincoln City during our Local study.

My Body

Open wide - let’s take a look inside! We’re on a voyage of discovery to investigate the busy world inside your body!  Follow a tasty morsel as it makes its way through your digestive system, helped by some mouth-watering saliva! Mmmm! And don’t forget the importance of good hygiene - at both ends! And whilst we’re talking business...could you recognise an animal just by its poo?  Are you brave enough to take the challenge? Make a model of the digestive system and use it to persuade others to eat healthily. Learn how to look after this marvellous belching, squelching, mixture-making machine we call our body.

 

Our Planet

This term we will be exploring our wonderful planet… so get your wetsuits ready as we’re going deep into an underwater world of incredible coral and mysterious sea creatures.
What do real divers get up to below the surface? Create a fishy story about exploring an amazing underwater world. Time to go a little deeper into our seas. Make a model deep-sea submarine that can withstand great pressure and travel to the deepest, darkest places on Earth. Make sure you test it first!
What are those bright lights in the distance? It’s a group of bioluminescent sea creatures!  Flippers on? Snorkel ready? Let’s head into the unknown...
