    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.
