Autumn Term

A Child’s War

(history focus)


A siren sounds, a building crumbles, a Spitfire zooms overhead, Take Cover! It’s 1939 and Britain is at war. Dee down in the Anderson shelter, learn why nations are fighting and why child evacuees must make the long journey from their homes and families into unknown territory. Make do and mend- and cook up a family meal from meagre rations. And, as peace is declared, let’s get ready to celebrate. Mr Churchill says ‘It’s and unconditional surrender!’


Frozen Kingdom

(geography focus)

Welcome to the planet’s coldest lands… vast wilds, hostile territories, incredibly beautiful yet often deadly. Take shelter from the elements or fall prey to icy winds and deepest chill. Trek bravely and valiantly across treacherous terrain to the ends of the Earth, treading deep in snow or pulled by a team of mighty sled dogs. Become a part of an Antarctic rescue team, braving the elements to rescue terrified passengers from a ship struck by a deadly iceberg that hides deep beneath the Antarctic Ocean. Speaking of icebergs, learn more about the tragedy of the Titanic.





Spring Term

Blood Heart

(science focus)

Crimson, scarlet, burgundy, cherry… blood flows through our bodies in all its vibrant shades of red. Let’s explore our circulation system! Now surgeons, don’t be squeamish as we dissect an animal heart and examine the veins, arteries and chambers up close. They all work hard to move blood around our bodies. William Harvey was fascinated with anatomy and made ground breaking discoveries about valves. I wonder what we might uncover? Find out how to keep your heart happy with cardiovascular exercise and healthy food.


(science focus)

Let’s discover what makes you…you! From your fingerprints and footprints, genes and DNA, everything is unique to you! So why do you look just like Mum or Dad? Explore the world of human identity and how our unique features can be used to tell us apart from others or even help to solve a crime!

And remember to love being you… Why? Because there’s only one you: you’re one of a kind!







Summer Term

Darwin’s Delights

(science focus)

Ship ahoy! We’re off on an exciting expedition with Charles Darwin and his crew on HMS Beagle. Can you trace his route across the vast ocean?

Stop at the magical Galapagos Islands to see the amazing species that helped Darwin develop his theory of evolution by natural selection. Do you know what’s so special about a lava lizard? Or why the blue-footed booby has blue feet? See how animals adapt to their environment over time and meet some of the world’s greatest explorers and imagine how humans will evolve in millions of years. It’s a scary thought!

Hola Mexico!

(history focus)

Welcome to Mexico! Get ready to explore this unique country, from its towering temples and stunning geography to its pulsing rhythms and fun-packed festivals. Tummy rumbling?
