Autumn 1 - Tribal Tales (Stone Age, Iron Age and Bronze 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. In science, we’ll plant grains and learn about plant life cycles. Copying the Beaker folk style, we’ll make clay containers. 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’.
Spring 1 – Tremors (Volcanoes and Rocks Geography Topic)
Tremors – Overwhelming and Mighty. Mother nature’s awesome energies hiss and roar deep inside the earth. We are going to be discovering what lies under the surface of the earth. For this half term we will become experts in all things to do with volcanoes and the earths structure. We will use maps to locate famous volcanoes and find out why and how they erupt. In literacy we will be writing reports about volcanoes and reading about where pebbles come from. In history we will explore what happen in the ancient city of Pompeii.
