Dear children, parents and carers,
Our topic for the Autumn term is the Stone Age. I am very excited to be taking you on this exhilarating journey through human history.
We will be looking at many aspects of pre-historic life starting with the Stone Age time line, followed by a Flint knapping workshop from our tool-making expert- Miss Monkley. We will research our ancestors’ diet, look at the way they lived, find out about hunters and gatherers as well as checking out Stone Age inventions.
In Art we will learn about cave paintings and have a go at creating our own masterpieces.
In the last week of September, we will visit Hill End Camp and take part in a Stone Age Settlement workshop. Watch this space for upcoming pictures!
We already have some super homework projects for all to see! :-)
In Guided Reading we will be enjoying a classic- Stig of the Dump by Clive King.
Maths this term will focus on improving our knowledge of place value, decimals and formal operations.
