Time to voyage into the Summer Term!


Who has inspired our world?


We hope you have had an exciting and restful break over Easter. Last term, we learnt what a continent is and the different continents that make up our world.

We will be using this knowledge to jet set around the world into different continents, meeting some special and inspirational people along the way and learning just why they were so significant! 



Our Summer Topic Information  


In this term, we will be learning all about a series of inspirational people from Europe, Asia, Africa, North America, South America, Australasia and Oceania. We will begin to develop a chronological understanding, and know where in time these people fit onto our timeline! We will have an understanding of why people did things, and how these impacted on the world and others around them. 

To do all this we will be looking at photographs, stories and different accounts as our evidence! 


Do you know anything about these inspirational people already? 

Have a look at the following people. Have you seen them before? Do you already have any knowledge about these people? You could even start to do a little bit of research before, so you are our own class expert!
