What Makes You Change?
Our project enquiry question this year is 'What Makes You Change?' Our project learning is cross curricular wherever possible. the basis of this approach to learning is knowledge based and skills rich as outlined by Jonathan Lear in his book 'The Monkey Proof BoxWe will be focusing on a discovery theme (history) based upon Magna Carta. We will look at life in the Middle Ages and where this period comes on a timeline. We will also look at the impact of Magna Carta on the history and development of democracy. Our concept words are 'individuality', 'choice', 'transformation' & 'class'. This theme covers PSHE (was King John a bully?....Yes). It also makes links to the choices we have in life and how the social class of an individual affected their life; the poor had very little power in the Middle Ages. We will make Mediaeval pottage using only vegetables like the peasants did, make our own jurors' chairs and write poetry on the theme of Magna Carta, and on significant events and people which link to the theme.
