Year 5 - Arc de triomphe



This year all classes at Holy Trinity are named after French landmarks. We have chosen the Arc de Triomphe. This famous monument is located in central Paris and was built by Napoleon to honour those who fought in the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars. To understand the significance of this landmark, we are learning about Napoleon as well as examining French society before the revolution and why it lead the citizens of France to demand change. We will also create a timeline of the French revolution. After that we will investigate where the arch is located, creating a detailed map and learning how to give directions around the area in French. To link this learning to our own personal experiences, we will create our own Arc de Triomphs, celebrating the triumphs in our own lives and those that have helped us to achieve our goals.
