'There is freedom waiting for you, on the breezes of the sky.

And you ask, "What if I fall?" Oh, but my darling, what if you fly?'

Happy New Year & Welcome Back - Tuesday 4th January 2022

Term 3 brings our whole school theme of 'EVENTS IN HISTORY'.

Under this theme and through our assemblies and PSHE work we will be investigating the concepts of Life/death, truth and fairness.

EYFS will be delving into 'WHAT IS IN THE TOY BOX'. They will be exploring the significance of toys to children past and present and how toys have changed through the ages. They will finish the term by making their own toys!

Year 1 and 2 will be taking to the skies in the topic 'UP UP and AWAY'. They will be finding out about the history of aviation from the Chinese kites being made around 400BC to modern jets. They will find out all about the Wright Brothers and one of my personal heroes, the wonderful Amelia Earhart.

Year 3 and 4 will be studying the TITANIC. They'll be finding out all about it's fateful journey. They'll investigate the different classes found on The Titanic and how your class affected your chances of survival. They'll also find out about The Titanic's links to Hastings through Alexander James Littlejohn - a landlord of the Crown Pub in the Old Town!

Year 5 and 6 will be investigating the Industrial Revolution. They will start by finding out what the Industrial Revolution means. I'm sure a few eyebrows will be raised when they realise just how different the lives of children were when we look at Victorian Children. We will then move to looking at some famous Industrialists, their philanthropic work in the background of poor working conditions and rising pollution and ask whether these people were 'HEROES OR VILLAINS'.

Take another look at the Knowledge Organisers and Curriculum Newsletters posted before the Christmas Holidays to get more information as to what your child will be doing.

As we all become Historians, we hope you can have some fantastic conversations with your children about these amazing Events in History! How do you think all these events changed the world as we know it?
