Autumn 2017

Our topic for the first half term is:

Brilliant Britain

 

During the topic we will explore the key question:

Who first lived in Britain?

 

This half term we are travelling back in time, right back to the era of early Britain! We will be asking questions and exploring a range of resources to find out ‘Who first lived in Britain?’ The children will be using mathematical knowledge of time and key historical dates to adventure through the Stone, Bronze and Iron Age and will research how Britain changed over these time periods. They will investigate art from this era, particularly looking at Early gatherers. They will also be learning about the discoveries made at Skara Brae and debating reasons why Stonehenge was created. During Literacy lessons, our learning will be based around the book ‘Stone Age Boy’, including drama activities and exploring different text types, from letters to diaries.
