‘Growing in love, in the spirit of Christ, for the benefit of all’




We're travelling back in time in the first half of this term!


Join me as we find out about super-strict schools. Make sure you're on your best behaviour though, as punishments are unquestionably terrible!

Discover a time when great minds thought new thoughts and ingenious inventors created so many things that we take for granted today: the electric lightbulb, the telephone and even the first flushing toilet!


Let's forge ahead to research a time when Victoria was Queen and Albert was Prince Consort, and when some people lived in slums while other prospered. 


Full steam ahead to the Victorian age!

Our Topic Work

Frozen Kingdom


Welcome to the planet's coldest lands... Vast wilds and hostile territories... Incredibly beautiful, yet often deadly. Take shelter from the elements or fall prey to icy winds and the deepest chill. Trek bravely and valiantly across treacherous terrain to the ends of the Earth. treading deep in snow or be pulled by a team of mighty sled dogs. 


Be alert, for magnificent animals roam these lands, sometimes hungry or fresh for a fight. Perhaps a hungry polar bear or an arctic fox is hunting rodents, as swift as the wind!


Research facts and figures of climate, temperature, habitats and ecosystems, and discover the beauty of the Northern Lights. 


Become part of an Antarctic rescue team, braving the elements to rescue terrified passengers from a ship struck  by a deadly iceberg that hides deep beneath the Antarctic Ocean. 


Keep your wits about you!
