River of Knowledge
Autumn: Disaster Strikes!
Our first topic is sure to excite and engage the class! Our first River of Knowledge topic ‘Disaster Strikes!’ will immerse the children in the history and culture of the Roman era. We will begin by building a timeline of the key events during this period of history allowing us to understandthe wider impact of Romans and the implications on today’s society for example the invention of the calendar! We will focus on the role of the Roman army, key figures in history such as Boudica and Julius Caesar and the role they played. Our topic work is made up of lots of exciting practical tasks such as drama, arts and cookery to provide a true Roman experience! In the second half term, we will focus on natural disasters specifically volcanos with a key focus on Pompeii linking to our knowledge of Rome.
