In a state – solids, liquids and gases

Children will learn the characteristic properties of solids, liquids and gases, first through physically exploring typical materials and then by classifying examples, such as powders and very viscous liquids.  Using first-hand experience and secondary sources, they will learn about changes of state and begin to understand freezing and boiling points as identifying characteristics of a material.


Who were the Anglo-Saxons and how do we know what was important to them?

This investigation enables children to reflect upon a number of the most significant changes that occurred in Britain during the first half of the Anglo-Saxon era. Initially the children examine the evidence as to why the Romans withdrew from Britain in the fifth century, and in particular the growing aggression of Barbarian tribes in Europe which culminated in the Sack of Rome in AD 410. Children then explore who the so-called Anglo-Saxons were, from where they originated and why their invasion and settlement was a relatively straightforward affair
