Term 1: Riotous Royals


Year 3 & 4 start the year with a fantastic topic.  We will be studying the kings and queens of Britain, their impact and key events from their monarchies. From William the Conqueror to Elizabeth II, we will be looking at how the role of a monarch has changed and how each monarch has had an impact on the country. This topic will include a visit from an extra special person, King Henry VIII himself!

 

 

 

 

 

Term 2: Best of British


In term 2, Year 3 & 4 will study the Geography of the British Isles. Beginning with the landscape of Kent before studying the major cities, the Lake District and the Highlands of Scotland, this topic will give the children a good understanding of our home islands. During this topic, we will also study famous British artists and recreate some of their work before holding our own art exhibition for you all to attend.

 

 

 

 

Term 3: Roman Britain


This is a particularly exciting term in which the children will study the Romans and how they impacted Britain and left their mark on for many years to come. Looking at Roman Canterbury in particular, the children will learn archaeological skills and use these to investigate the past. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Term 4: Inventors


Using the text, Flights and Chimes and Mysterious Times as a hook, this term sees the children becoming inventors themselves. They will study the design process before creating their own inventions. You will be able to see these in our design expo at the end of the term. Furthermore, the children will study successful British inventors and learn about their impact on the modern world.

 

 

Term 5: Farming World


With a particular focus on farming around Sittingbourne, the children will be learning about how food arrives on our plates. The children will be able to visit a local farm and learn about the processes that make food so readily accessible for us in modern Britain. They will also learn about the history of farming and how methods have developed.

 

 

 

 

 

Term 6: Explorers


We finish the year with a fascinating topic about explorers and their impact on the world. With a particular focus on Cook’s exploration of Australia, including the impact of this exploration on the local population, the children will study British exploration and discuss the ethical questions that this raises.
