YEAR 5: PROJECT BASED LEARNING
How can we create a museum for the furture?
During this half term, each year 5 class studied a different civilisation of the ancient world - using internet research, primary sources and artefacts to explore the key themes of the civilisations of Ancient Islam, the Ancient Maya and Benin. Children discovered how artefacts are central to our understanding of the past and went on to create their very own replica artefacts from these civilisations using a range of materials and undertaking the design and making processes independently. Finally, having researched the historical importance of their chosen artefact, students recorded a short summary of the artefact to inform visitors to our virtual museum.
