Autumn Term:

Stone Age to Roman Britain

Our Marvellous Middle!

 

When we returned to school after half-term, we were greeted with a sign stating:

 

MEMBERS OF THE ICENI TRIBE ONLY. ROMANS, KEEP OUT!

 

We entered the classroom to see that a camp fire with lots of other interesting artefacts were waiting for us. We first discovered that Boudicca (aka, Miss Button!) was the leader of our tribe, the Iceni, and we had a very important task ahead of us. To ensure we did not fall to the Romans, it was vital that we strengthen our settlement to prepare for the possibility of an invasion. We first explored our jobs within the tribe; we had cooks, blacksmiths, potters, weavers, Druids and many more! 

 

After break, we received the dreaded news that we had been waiting for: the Romans were coming...

 

Boudicca instructed us to begin designing our shields to prepare us for battle. We explored traditional Celtic designs and enjoyed creating our own patterns. 

 

Finally, we plotted a timeline and discovered how our beloved tribe finally fell to the rotten Romans.

Our Stunning Start! 
 

On Friday 2nd September, Bramble Class arrived back at school to an exciting challenge! We had to use a set of clues to work out what our project is going to be this term. First, we became historians and explored a range of artefacts that indicated that our project was going to be based on a time in history many, many years ago. We later discovered that this was known as prehistoric Britain. Then, we found out that we were going to create cave paintings: we became Hunter Gatherers and scavenged for tools to use to help us produce our paintings. We finally discovered that our project is going to start with the Stone Age before moving on to the Bronze Age, Iron Age and finally the Romans.

Stunning Start!

 

Bramble Class arrived back to school to see that a crime had been committed in Bramble Class. The children spent the morning investigating who the guilty culprit was, using the forensic evidence that had been collected. Bramble Class even had a go at taking each other's fingerprints and finally discovered that the criminal that stole Miss Button's laptop was...MR HOLMES!

Autumn Term:

What is Justice?

 

This term, Bramble Class will be embarking on a new project. We will be exploring our key concept question; 'What is Justice?' and deepen our understanding of significant events that have shaped history and today. Our topic driver will be Africa, where we will explore key countries such as Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and South Africa. Here, we will venture back in time to key events such as Apartheid to support our understanding of injustice, as well as identifying aspects of justice and injustice in modern-day Africa (farming/fair trade).
