Summer Term 1


“Wars of the World” is a thematic unit, based on conflicts past and present, with a key focus on history and geography. Pupils will learn about the root causes of war and have an understanding of its impact, focusing on the two World Wars in particular. They will also learn about civil wars and pacifism.



Summer Term 2


“Global Warning” is a thematic unit, which is geography-focused with sustainability and eco literacy at its heart. This project-based theme involves pupils applying their learning about the global environmental issues of waste and pollution by creating a board game, which is both educational and fun. The pupils will work in groups to research, design and produce their board game, after which they will present and demonstrate it to the class.
