Happy new year everybody! Last term was a great success, with children learning a lot about space physics in particular. We greatly enjoyed looking through the solarscopes and looking at the orrery with David, our STEM ambassador.  

This term’s topic is “Who’s the Boss?” which is a topic learning about democracy through the ages. Beginning with a study of Ancient Greece, we will map the country, learn about the early philosophers and create our own Greek Myth monsters.  

We will then move on to political changes during Tudor Britain, including Henry VIII’s break with Rome, and then look at modern-day democracy. We will be inviting a local MP into school to answer children’s questions about democracy. The whole topic will culminate with a Democracy assembly to showcase our learning, and parents and carers are invited.
