Study achievements and legacies in some ancient civilisations.
History We will look at some the major conflicts the world has seen – WW1 and WW2. We will also explore present day forces – the Army, The Royal Navy and the RAF. We will then go on to look at conflict throughout history. The development of swords in the Bronze Age is the first clue that conflicts were beginning to arise. We will look at Iron Age warriors who tattooed themselves with blue dye (woad) to frighten their enemies; Roman weapons, armour and tactics and compare them with those used by people like Boudica who fought against Roman occupation of Britain. We will explore forts and other defences such as Hadrian’s Wall and Offa’s Dyke. We will explore how the Vikings invented the stirrup for riding horseback and look at the weapons and armour they fought with.
We will look at some of the major conflicts after CE 1066 in Britain including the Peasants’ Revolt, the Wars of the Roses, the Reformation and the Civil War. We will look at some of the castles and fortifications that remain. We will explore some of the weapons and conflicts of some ancient societies focusing on some of the violent customs of the Mayans and the Spanish conquistadors who colonised Mexico. We will look in depth at some of the reasons for conflict and research in depth some of the tragic events of WW1.
  We will begin by exploring some of our own personal achievements and then some of the things in modern life that we consider to be big achievements, such as the construction of magnificent buildings and the invention of technologies that have transformed our lives. We will explore some of the big achievements and legacies of civilisations throughout history. We will look at some other great achievements including Tudor and Elizabethan explorers, the first moon landings and the development of machines and healthcare. We will look ta some of the marvellous inventions of the Victorian era and will look at some of the achievements of significant people from our local area. As we think about moving to secondary school, we will think about our own achievements and legacies.
Geography   We will look at the physical and human features of our world and investigate patterns of earthquakes, mountains and volcanoes. We will find out about where natural resources are found and explore different climatic and vegetation zones of the world. We will also explore how countries are linked through their use of natural resources  
Design Technology      
Art We will draw and paint images of some of the weapons, armoury and fortifications we study.
We will study still life poppies and use watercolours to paint images inspired by the poppy fields of Flanders, as well as sculptures inspired by the display at the Tower of London.
We will draw and paint images of volcanoes, earthquakes and zones we study.
We will create sculptures of these amazing landmarks and take inspiration from some of the world’s greatest artists in each of the zones we visit. Some of these could include:
Joseph Turner – Mount Vesuvius Eruption 1817
Katsushika Holusai – the dragon on Smoke escaping from Mt Fuji.
Andy Warhol – Vesuvius
Utagawa Hiroshige - Aratame,
We will work together to produce a piece of artwork that shows our achievements and legacies and will displayed within the academy for future cohorts to see and aspire to.
