Our Learning Journey
Autumn 1 - Could you have survived in the Stone Age?
Let’s travel back to prehistoric times! This half term we’re going to find a prehistoric site in our local area by studying maps and researching online. Through our research, we’ll learn about the Stone Age, the Bronze Age and the Iron Age. What were people’s daily lives like and what epic battles did they fight? Using techniques such as cutting, scraping and mark making, we’ll make Stone Age tools. We’ll look closely at cave paintings and create our own. As we learn about the Bronze Age, we’ll build monuments and investigate their shadows. Then, we’ll travel to the Iron Age to learn about hill forts and the properties of iron. We’ll also make Iron Age jewellery. During an exploratory dig, we’ll find all sorts of objects and creatures. What will we uncover? At the end of the unit, we’ll write performance poetry to insult our enemies! We’ll use the internet to research Celtic beliefs, and hold a ‘Celtic Gods and Goddesses day’.
