What we are learning in Term 4


This terms topic focus is Plots and Protests.

Our learning question is, 'What is the cost of a protest and what has been gained from them in the past?' Within this topic, the children will be given the opportunity to explore historical plots and protests that have taken, as well as protests that continue to take place in the present. During the topic, some of the key events and people the children will be looking at include:

  • Martin Luther King
    • Civil Rights
  • Rosa Parks
    • ​​​​​​​Civil Rights
  • Greta Thunberg 
    • ​​​​​​​Climate Change
  • Guy Fawkes 
    • ​​​​​​​The Gun Powder Plot
  • Emily Pankhurst
