STORY OF CHOCOLATE

(HISTORY & GEOGRAPHY)

A non-European society that provides contrasts with British history - study of: Benin (West Africa) c. AD 900-1300

We will explore West Africa and the fascinating Kingdom of Benin civilisation. We will find out where the Kingdom of Benin was located, what life was like, and how society was organised. Pupils will also investigate the artefacts and evidence that remain of this civilisation.

 

 

 

 

 

Name and locate counties and cities of the United Kingdom, geographical regions and their identifying human and physical characteristics, key topographical features focusing on coasts and land-use patterns; and understand how some of these aspects have changed over time.

The children gain a thorough knowledge of coasts through applying the knowledge gained from their research in practical tasks such as model making, drama and artwork. We will also learn about coastal erosion and the impact of the sea on human activity.

 

Extended chronological study: we will be studying an aspect of British history that extends pupils’ chronological knowledge beyond 1066, focusing on:

Crime and punishment from the Anglo-Saxons to the present.

In Enough for Everyone, children will think about the needs of a settlement, and the needs of the planet as a whole. They will find out where resource such as power and food come from, and look at ways in which natural resources can be conserved. After discussing the idea of a carbon footprint, children will have the chance to consider how their actions impact on others around the world, and to think about the changes that they could make to try to ensure that natural resources are shared so there is enough for everyone. 

 

 

In this unit, the children find out about how goods and services are traded around the world. They will explore the UK's trade links today and in the past, finding out about goods imported and exported and the methods of transport used. Through a more detailed look at one of the UK's trade partners, the children will learn about the benefits of trading internationally, as well as the risks to this area. The children will also learn about fair trade and why it is important in a global market

(Human geography, including: types of settlement and land use, economic activity including trade links, and the distribution of natural resources including energy, food, minerals and water.)

 

 

Having studied global trade children will focus specifically on the History and Geography of the Chocolate Trade. In this unit children will be encouraged to develop skills in independent research and presentation through a series of multi-disciplinary projects which will develop their understanding of the history and geography of the Story of Chocolate.
