Autumn 1

Tribal Tales

Take a moment to step outside and stand quietly and still. Turn off all technology and try to forget the modern world. Imagine this place 5000 years ago. What would you have seen? Head back to prehistoric times (it’s a long time ago) to gather berries and hunt down dinner. Learn how the people of Britain developed over thousands of years, from the Stone Age to the Roman invasion, Work as a tribe – what tribal takes will you have to tell?


Autumn 2

Scrumdiddlyumptious

Tuck in and enjoy a yummy journey of discovery, tasting fantastic fruits, venerable vegetables and tantalizing treats! Work up an appetite with delicious stories about food, have fun with vegetable orchestra or become a fruity sculpture. Fine exciting recipes to read and write your own too. Then get busy in the kitchen making tasty dishes from across the world and discover how good food helps you grow fit and strong. Be a whizz and create your own scrumdiddlyumptious smoothie. Here’s food for thought – if you are what you eat … what does that make you?

Spring 1

Mighty Metals

You are an engineer, designer and scientist. Explore the scientific world of forces and magnetism, metals and materials. Expand your mind as you test and trial, build and move. Which force is at play as you slide down a slide or swing on a swing? Can you explain why magnets repel and attract? Can you make a penny look shiny and new? If you were a metal, which one would you be? Gold, a shimmering precious costly mineral? Or steel, that strong and useful alloy? Maybe you are iron, malleable and easy to shape, but ready to rust! Maybe you’re not a metal at all - but a force to be reckoned with!

Spring 2

Gods & Mortals

Discover a fantastical world full of mythical creatures and legendary heroes. Poseidon, Apollo, Artemis and Zeus reign almighty from Mount Olympus, watching mere mortals on dusty Athenian streets. Explore the terrains of Greece, where in pure blue skies, the sun scorches waxen wings and melts the fortunes of Icarus and Daedalus.

Summer 1

Tremors

Tremors. Overwhelming and mighty, Mother Nature’s awesome energies hiss and roar deep within the Earth. Plates collide, spewing lava. Rocks rain down and mud slides in torrents. Towns and cities vanish under ashen clouds. Discover the dangerous and ferocious world of natural disasters and glimpse their savage and deadly effects. Visit the ancient city of historic Pompeii, frozen in time, then create your own blistering explosions from model volcanoes that fire foamy lava. Discover the properties of rocks shaped by the Earth’s breath-taking power.

Summer 2

Urban Pioneers

Explore with fresh eyes the art of the city!  Take a look at your hometown to find out how things have changed and think about how you could improve the urban environment. Maybe add more colour? More light? Maybe you could light up the city with creations of your own…a statue, a light show or street art! Discover the colourful world of graffiti! Is art or vandalism? Can you find some street art that you think improves the city? How will you brighten up the strets of London with your artistic flair? You’re an urban pioneer….so get ready to go!
