History

An overview of an ancient civilisation

Ancient Greece - What did they do for us?

What'™s so special about Greece now and in  ancient times?

What can we learn about Ancient Greece from what has been left behind?

Pupils understand that our knowledge of the climate and geography of Greece today helps us understand the important of long coastlines, mountainous interior, abundant islands. These feature frequently in Greek legends.

Discuss the term civilisation and how a civilisation rises up. Use a globe and maps to identify Greece and the UK . Why would they be different societies due to the climate.  (Warmer climate'”more time to form a social structure)

Use a timeline to show the period of time

Ancient Greece existed and in context to the

period occurring in Britain.

Grasp the diversity of life style depending on position within society and know the influence that the large slave population had on Ancient Greeks'™ ability to have time to think. (Rights and Responsibilities)

Ideas of democracy (Should we build the Parthenon?)

That there was a clear distinction between life in

Athens and Sparta for both men and women.

Grasp an understanding of the political system and democracy.

What can we tell about the Ancient Greeks from their interest in the theatre and festivals like the Olympics?

Pupils understand that the Olympics were not just athletic events.

Children use primary and secondary sources to make a hypothesis. From the evidence presented I think'¦

That sometimes books disagree, e.g.: did women do

the shopping. That we need to cross-refer between a number of sources to be able to answer the questions

historians pose. That it is often difficult to be certain so we have to use tentative language.

 

 

Local Study -  defence of the realm

Focus on the Tudor ships and the Mary Rose.

Why was the Armada defeated?

 

 

An in depth study: Bagdad

A non-European Society (early Islamic)

Read the children the beginning of '˜The house of

Wisdom'™ Use maps and atlases to locate Bagdad and look at the geographical structure of the country.

Why do you think it is important to study Islam in this period, c.900?

Pupils can locate this topic in time and place. They deduce from source clues the importance of Arab Muslims'™ contribution to the world of mathematics and science, books, geography, astronomy, medicine etc. They know Baghdad was a major city of

learning and printing. Over 100 booksellers and was 10 x size of London at the time. By middle of 8th century Islam spread from Arabia to as far as Spain in the west and India in the east, larger area than that of the Roman Empire, covering almost a third of the world'™s population.

Bagdad was the centre of Islamic civilisation '“Roman empire collapsed and Britain in the dark ages. Discuss the notion of civilisation. (Building upon previous topics) What makes a civilisation?

How were the Arabs able to spread so far, so quickly, within just a century of the Prophet Muhammad'™s death?

They are able to give several reasons why it spread so quickly e.g. weakness of surrounding empires, exhausted by war; divisions among rivals; zeal of their faith; better fighting tactics and weapons and can classify under different types of reasons e.g. military.

What can we learn about Islam from the way they set up

the capital at Baghdad?They are able to creatively construct an image of what Baghdad would have looked like as a team working collaboratively.

Pupils grasp that workers came from every city in the empire to build the city and that the network of canals supplied water to farms and allowed food and other goods to be brought into the city by boat.

In its Golden Age, ten times more people lived in Baghdad than in London. So what was so special about it and how

can we possibly know?

Pupils grasp the importance of Trade to enriching life there.

Just how amazing was daily life for rich people in

Islamic cities?
