Spring Term - Topic 3



How has the nation changed? - The Wright Brothers


The focus for this part of the term is history.

We will be learning the Wright Brothers and how flight has changed over the years to answer our question 'How has the nation changed?'. 

Learning Objectives:

  • to look at changes within living memory. Where appropriate, these should be used to reveal aspects of change in national life

  • the lives of significant individuals in the past who have contributed to national and international achievements. Some should be used to compare aspects of life in different periods.

By the end of this topic the children will be able to:

  • Order events on a timeline.
  • Compare and contrast what life was like in different periods to now.
  • Explain the contributions of significant individuals from the past. 

Our class books this half term are about other people who have helped changed the world as we learn more about the past. We will be starting with Taking Flight by Adam Hancher 

In English we are reading The Night Gardener by the Fan Brothers. We will be writing our own setting narrative and a dairy.
