This term’s topic stretches across both spring term one and two, it is named ‘Parliament and Power’. Your child will be looking at British history that extends their chronological knowledge beyond 1066. We will be exploring and trace the origins of the British Parliamentary system, learning about Simon De Montfort, Magna Carta, Gunpowder Plot, Fire in the House and the Suffragettes. Maths and English will continue to follow the National Curriculum.
You can find out more about the learning we have planned for the weeks ahead in our Class Newsletter and our Curriculum Map. See also our ‘knowledge organiser’. This is a new initiative that is being trialled, the knowledge organiser has been created to show children the exact facts, dates, events, concepts and precise definitions that they need to learn in order to master in long-term memory of this topic.
