Our Topic this term is The Great the Bold and the Brave

The history of western civilisation begins with the Greeks and the Romans. Their expanding empires helped to spread ideas about architecture, food, entertainment, literature, science, medicine and politics across the globe. As their empires ended, other cultures rose to prominence, absorbing and passing on their own ideas and cultures – creating the world we know today.  

We will need to be historians, geographers, musicians and artists to investigate and develop our understanding of different historical civilisations and their impact on our world.

What were some of the biggest contributions of these civilisations? How do their legacies impact upon the world we live in today?
