Our Learning This Year






Geography focus

What are we doing to our precious world?


A study of different biomes around the world: how they differ; how we would survive in different locations; and the different flora and fauna that flourish in them. We also complete an in-depth study about plastic pollution and how we can help stop plastic ruining our oceans.  

Let's Discover




History focus

How does modern life in Chesterfield

differ from the past? 


A study about Chesterfield and how it changed over time – looking in depth at Victorian Times, World War 1 and World War 2. We study our school and its Victorian history as well as learning about evacuees that came to Old Hall during World War 2.
