This term's topic has a history focus and will be based around prehistoric Britain. We will be exploring The Stone Age and considering the changes that occurred during the Bronze and Iron Ages before the Romans invaded Britain. We will learn how Stone Age people survived as hunter-gatherers and we will be studying Stonehenge and Skara Brae as important historic sites from this period. We will consider the significance of historic artefacts in giving us clues about the past before the time of written language and will learn how to construct timelines to order events.
Science will focus on rocks and soil. We will be studying the three main types of rock and learn how to classify them using their different properties. We will find out about fossils and will learn about Mary Anning and her famous discoveries.
Our art lessons will be exploring the work of two sculptors called Betye Saar and Alexander Calder. We will be comparing the style, content and construction of their artwork before combining our favourite elements to make our own ‘found art’ mobiles.
