We have been doing some fantastic work lately. Take a look at what we have been up to and explore our website!


Our topic this term is called:

'The Kingdom of Benin'

During this topic, we will be learning about the history of the Kingdom of Benin and how it links with British history.  We will learn about these sculptures, called 'Benin Bronzes' and create some of our own with a claywork Art project.

For the Geography aspect, we will learn all about the slave trade triangle and how Britain was involved in this terrible period of time.
