Our Topic Work Term 1 ~

"Peasants, Princes and Pestilence"

Lock your doors and pull up the drawbridge: the dreaded "Great Pestilence" is here.

At the start of this term, we'll meet a strange character and use a range of source materials to research the symptoms of the Black Death.  Our geography skills will help us understand how the Black Death came to Britain and why it spread so quickly.  We'll find out about disgusting and dangerous plague cures.  Our personal plague journals will record the horror of the Black Death.

We'll also learn about different social classes, understand the reasons for the Peasants' Revolt and learn what it was like to be a knight.

 

Art and Design

We will be creating our own plague journal.

 

Religious Education

IN RE this term we will be learning about Christianity.

 

Rights Respecting School

 

Article 7

The right to have a name.  We encourage children to look into the meaning/origin of their names and make a picture any size, any style of their name for a display.
