Year 5 IPC Project, Autumn: The Great, The Bold, The Brave

 
  • What’s the big idea?

    The history of western civilisation begins with the Greeks and the Romans. Their expanding empires helped to spread ideas about architecture, food, entertainment, literature, science, medicine and politics across the globe. As their empires ended, other cultures rose to prominence, absorbing and passing on their own ideas and cultures – creating the world we know today.  

    We will need to be historians, geographers and artists to investigate and develop our understanding of different historical civilisations and their impact on our world.

    What were some of the biggest contributions of these civilisations? How do their legacies impact upon the world we live in today?

  • What will we be learning?

    • order and then place events on a timeline (relating to this project)

  • Knowledge organiser

    We use a knowledge organiser for every project in every year group. It is a helpful way for children and families to see the key knowledge that children will learn. This key knowledge helps the children ask more questions and then find out more information.

    It would be helpful to talk with your child about this knowledge organiser. As the project develops, they will be able to share more knowledge. Thank you!
