YEAR 6: PROJECT BASED LEARNING
Does Britain's past quality it as 'great'?
Over this project, children were tasked with the challenge of creating their very own civilisation. In these 'table tribes', children carefully considered basic needs, health, law and order and education; hoping to make a successful settlement. They were then introduced to 'colonalism' and learnt about Britain's imperial past. Children were encouraged to interrogate and analyse Britains role across the globe, with particular focus on Britain's attitude to its Empire. They formed their own opinion on the issue of colonialism and came to understand the impact this foreign intervention had on cultures and communities all around the world.
