This term we will be going back in time to discover life during the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. We will be finding out about the first men and women who came to Britain, over 2.5million years ago, where they settled, why they settled and what their housing was like. We will research how each age developed in time up until the Romans invaded.


Geography:

One of the world’s most famous monuments stands in Salisbury Plain – Stonehenge. We will be finding out how it was built and how it has transformed overtime.

We will also explore a prehistoric village in Scotland called ‘Skara Brae’, it was discovered during the archaeological excavations of the 1970s and  provides evidence to suggest how these people lived.

English:
We will be reading texts such as ‘Ug the stone age boy’, ‘Cave Baby’ and ‘Stonehenge,’ as well as other informative texts for us to research facts about this incredible time period. We will also be watching clips and producing writing from the film ‘The Croods.’ We will be using these texts to use in writing, such as sequence writing, poetry, explanation texts and instructional texts too!
