The Stone Age
In our topic we will study the chronology from Stone
Age to Iron Age, and look at significant events in this
time period, together with the achievements of man.
The children will be using different types of maps
to find physical features such as rivers and
mountains and human features including cities of the
United Kingdom. This will lead us onto learning about
how land use has changed over time.
Our science topics include comparing and investigating
the physical properties of rocks and then learning how
fossils are formed. Later in the term, light will be our
focus answering the question, ‘Can you explain how a
Stone Age sundial would work? ‘
Through our Stone Age topic the children will
…create cave paintings, investigating and testing
different mediums and working with colour and
then texture. In the second half term the children
will be printing in the style of artist, Keith Haring.
