Autumn 1

The Blitz

A siren sounds, a building crumbles, a Spitfire zooms overhead. Take cover! It’s 1939 and Britain is at war. Deep down in the Anderson shelter, learn why nations are fighting and why child evacuees must make the long journey from the homes and families into unknown territory.

Autumn 2

Fallen Fields

Known as ‘the war to end all wars’ the First World War was a conflict that had a devastating effect on millions of people across the world. What started this global tragedy? What was life like for families on the home front as they waited for new of loved ones who were ‘missing in action’? How did the soldiers endure the terrible conditions in the trenches? How was a fragile peace finally achieved? We will always remember the fallen.

Spring 1

Frozen Kingdom

Welcome to the planet’s coldest lands… vast, wild, hostile territories, incredibly beautiful yet often deadly. Take shelter from the elements or fall prey to icy winds. Trek bravely and valiantly across treacherous terrain to the ends of the earth, treading deep in snow or pulled by a team of mighty huskies. Be alert, for magnificent mammals roam these lands: perhaps you’ll come across a ravenous polar bear or an artic fox! Research facts and figures of climate, temperature, habitats and eco systems and produce beautiful works of art inspired by the Northern Lights. Become part of an Arctic rescue team, braving the elements to rescue terrified passengers from a ship struck by a deadly iceberg that hides deep beneath the Antarctic Ocean. So wrap up well, everyone and settle by the fire: I’m just going outside and may be some time…
