each year group has a specific topic to explore in depth.
provides the opportunity for children, and teachers, to learn more
about an interesting topic and to apply lessons such as maths, art,
writing, and science
to this overarching topic.
topics include more traditional subjects,
as the Ancient
Greeks and WWI
and WWII, as well as
that are of particular interest given external events.
we looked at space
when Tim Peake was on
the International Space Station and
the Olympics when we hosted the Games in London. We find that this
caters not only to a range of interests but also engages children
with news and current affairs.
Children get very involved in topics which often culminate in dressing up, making pieces of art to send home, and putting on performances for parents and relatives to come in and enjoy.
