  • Need for Speed – History of the Railways
  • Ancient Greece – Ancient Greece
  • Once Upon a Royal Time – The Royal Family
  • Walk Like an Egyptian - Ancient Egypt
  • The Romans – The Romans

History topics are normally launched through exciting Big Bangs to enthuse and engage the children in their learning.  In Key Stage 2 this year, we have made stone age weapons, created ancient Greece-inspired clay pts, created art posters based on old railway posters and created a display about Greek Gods.
