Term 1 and 2

The Stone Age

In Term 1 and 2, our History topic is about the Stone Age. The children will explore the vast world of Prehistoric Britain and learn all about the first steps that our ancestors took. Through this topic, the children will gain an understanding of the Stone Age and how we know about the prehistoric past. At the end of the Topic, the children will be displaying their Stone Age homework projects in our class museum. In Science, our topic is ‘Predator!’ Children will learn about carnivores, omnivores and herbivores. They will discover what different animals eat and construct food chains to show this. This will lead to investigations about deadly predators! In Art, children will experiment with water colours and learn about mixing colours.
