For Women’s History Month, we discussed significant women throughout history and how women have often had limitations placed upon their freedom and rights. In pairs we came up with who we thought of as significant women and we discussed what makes a person significant. In groups we researched Evelyn Glennie, a famous deaf percussionist and learnt about HERstory.

Line of enquiry - ‘Where do the Ancient Greeks fit into the bigger picture?’


We worked in groups to explore the chronology of the Ancient Greek civilisation.  We placed different periods of History onto the correct place on the timeline, including periods we have studied before.  We then tried to work out where the Ancient Greeks would fit in on the timeline.  As a group we had to consider:


•           What else was going on at the time of the Ancient Greek era?

•           Did the Ancient Greek period of history last long?  Is it a significant period of history? 

•           What came before it?  What came after? 

•           Can you hypothesize why it might have come to an end?

•           What other observations can you make about the timeline?


We also visited the outdoor timeline in the school playground so that we could assess where the Ancient Greek civilisation fits into the bigger picture.

World War Two day was a massive hit with all of the pupils in Chestnut. They have cemented their learning through interactive games, re-creating scenes from the era and learning about music and dance of that time. 

Chestnut class have absolutely loved learning about World War 2 in our history lessons this term. They've been really engaged learning about life as an evacuee, what the war was like for those on the Home Front and discussing the meaning and impact of propaganda and censorship by the government.
