2022 - 2023
Route Planning (Summer Term)
Our learning started with understanding the symbols and reference numbers on Ordnance Survey maps. We sketched an area within our local community, using the symbols we had learnt. Building upon our prior knowledge from our Somerset Museum trip about Romans, where we looked at digital routes, we used Satellite Navigation to plan a route from our school to the Tudor building in town (Caffe Nero).
Comparing a Region of North America and UK (Spring Term)
To start our comparison journey, we looked at the differences and similarities between North America and UK. Our ideas were collected in a Venn Diagram. It was very interesting to see the results. After a class vote, it was decided we would focus on the south-west of England and the south-west of North America. We ensured the facts we researched online were from trusted sources.
How Did the Iron Age Transport Goods? (Autumn 2022)
We have been exploring the method of transport and routes that the Iron Age people would have taken in order to move goods around the United Kingdom. We focussed on Meare, where it was infamous for settlement and the production of glass beads.
2021 - 2022
Aqueducts (Spring Term)
We have started our focus on Aqueducts ready to use for our DT project and English writing. We made comparisons between the Roman Aqueducts and Modern Aqueducts and why they are a necessity.
