Our first topic in Year 5 is called Enslaved Africans. Within this topic we will be learning all about the slave trade! We will be investigating how the slave trade began, the countries involved and the British Empire and it's role within the slave trade.
We will also be looking at the 'Trade Triangle' and devleoping our map skills to locate these countries and identify why they were part of the trade and what they gained from it.
During our learning, we will be combining our History learning with English genres where we will be writing from the point of view of a slave and reporting on the impact William Wilberforce had on the abolishment of slavery.
