Over the course of the year, we will be covering a wide range of topics in
our PBL (Project Based Learning). We will be examining the notion of what
it means to be ‘heroic’ and look at historical figures who made a significant
contribution within a specific time period.  We will be using our
geographical skills to study ‘rivers and coasts’ and look at the impact a river
has on its surroundings as well as the impact it has had on societies and
settlements across various historical periods. This leads nicely into learning
about Roman Britain and how life in Britain changed as a result of the
invasion and settlement of the Romans. In Science we will be looking at the
how we classify living things according to different characteristics. We will
also study animals including humans and focus on the teeth structure in
humans, states of matter to focus on the relationship between solids,
liquids and gases and sound and electricity. 
Our Childhood Promise Trip for the year will be a trip to West Wittering
Beach in the Summer Term. It promises to be a fun and memorable day
out. We look forward to a successful year ahead!
