Lower KS2: Y3 (ST) Y3/4 (MC) Y4 (JJ) 2019 - 2020

Miss Townes

In LKS2 this term we are learning all about different Ancient Civilisations. We are launching our topic with a visit from a Mayan Warrior and then we will study the Mayans. We will learn all about where the Mayans lived, who they worshiped, what they ate and the clothes that they wore. We are looking forward to using clay and paint to model our own Mayan masks.

We will then move forward in time to learn about the Ancient Greeks. We will look at significant events in the Ancient Geek timeline and study the story of the Trojan horse. Using our Design and Technology skills we will build our own Trojan horse and using axis and gears our Trojan horse will move! We will investigate the impact of the Greek civilisation on modern life and in particular democracy.

Our next civilisation will be the Romans, where we will study the expansion of the Roman Empire and in our science lessons we will investigate the best material to use for a Roman Gladiator’s uniform. We will have great fun using junk modelling to create a cross section of a Roman road, and tasting delicious Roman food.

Anglo Saxons are our 4th civilisation to study. We will look at the Anglo Saxon Gods, their Kings and their struggles and their places where they invaded.

We will finish this topic with the Vikings and learning all about Viking life and their battles.

Our end event for this topic is a visit from a Viking Warrior. This is a great experience for the children where they have an opportunity to ‘feel’ what life was like for an Viking person.

We will be covering strands from National Curriculum in Science and Design Technology through a cross curricula approach.  RE, Music, PE, French and Computing will be taught discretely.

Please see our curriculum map to see what we are studying in each area of the curriculum.
