Our Country – We will explore the UK by looking at individual countries, capital cities, human and physical features along with comparing and contrasting the capital cities of London and Brasilia.


Our School – We will explore our school environment using first hand observation and experience to enhance their awareness along with essential map skills and fieldwork.


Beside the Seaside - We will learn about seaside environments; finding out where they are located in the United Kingdom using maps and aerial photographs. We will learn about the similarities and differences between seaside resorts and our own locality, looking at how resorts have changed over time.





Kings and Queens – The Kings and Queens unit will teach the children about the significant British monarchs in history, and gives a more in-depth study of Richard III as well as asking the children to draw comparisons between Elizabeth I and Queen Victoria.



Nurturing Nurses – We will learn about the influential nurses Florence Nightingale, Mary Seacole and Edith Cavell. We will establish what makes a person significant, compare the lives and work of these nurses and consider how these individuals have influenced nursing today.



Toys - This unit will teach the children about popular toys through the 20th century and the early 21st century. The children will develop a range of historical skills such as: asking and answering questions, identifying and interpreting different sources and recognising change and exploring how this influences them today.
