Summer 1


Full Steam Ahead!

Synopsis: Children use the stimulus of railways and railway journeys to explore the topography of the UK. They may choose to read The Railway Children to explore classic literary heritage. Using the language and features of this classic text or similar, children create their own narrative, interweaving character, setting and plot. They could also write a recount of a train journey.

Spring 2


Secrets of the Sarcophagus


Synopsis: Children carry out an in-depth study of Ancient Egyptian mummification and the burial ritual. They focus on Howard Carter, the archaeologist, and the discovery of Tutankhamun. They use this understanding to write an explanation text and a first-person account of the discovery. The children will also write a winter poem using figurative language.


In History, children sift and weigh evidence to support/refute historical claims.

In D&T, children create an educational product (sarcophagus) focusing on functionality and aesthetics.
