Summer Term Learning


In the Summer Term, Year 5 and 6 will be working towards answering the Big Question: ‘Can trade be a force for good?’ We will be starting our journey by thinking about what trade is and whether we think it is fair or not. Next, we will think about global trade by looking at where our belongings were made. We will then go back in time to look at trade in the past, learning about the Silk Road, a network of trade routes connecting the East and the West, starting in China and spreading through many other countries. In the second half of our topic, we will focus more on trade today, learning from business owners who have tried to create businesses that have a positive impact. We will then have a go at being entrepreneurs ourselves and designing a product that could have a positive impact.
