Cedar Class

Cedar Class is our Junior class taught by Mr Barton. 

Our Topic for September is Peasants, Princes and Pestilence. 

Princes ...

This project will develop the children’s knowledge of 14th century England. Children will learn about life in Medieval times, including the effects and impact of the Black Death.

You can start learning some of the key information from the knowledge organiser in the files below. There are also some interesting facts to really get your brain thinking...

You might choose to start your learning with some of these activities over Summer: 

- Search your local library to find out if the plague of the 14th century affected a village or town near you. What information can you find out?

- Write a letter to a child of the 21st century, imagining you are a peasant child of the 14th century. What could you tell them about your life?

- Design a coat of arms for your family. What symbols would you use and what would they represent? What would be your family motto?

- Find out what happens when something decomposes. Place an apple core, orange or grape in a transparent container and watch as it decomposes. Document what happens.

- Use a map of the UK to identify castles of the Middle Ages. Make a scrapbook or journal to research facts about one of them. Be prepared to present your scrapbook to others.

- Make a model rat out of papier mâché. Paint it to make it look realistic. Take a picture of your rat in different places but try not to scare anyone!
