Welcome to Class 4!
During the Summer Term, our topic is ‘Through the Ages’.
In history, we will be learning about how the Stone Age to Bronze Age period impacted on life in Britain. The children will learn about how early man survived in a harsh environment, why Skara Brae was important for understanding life in the Stone Age, how copper mining was crucial to the Bronze Age and why Stonehenge was built. As well as this, the children will also learn about why Iron Age people developed hillforts and how important Druids were in Iron Age Britain.
In science, we will be discovering the different types of rocks and how they are formed. The children will compare and group rocks based on appearance and simple properties. In addition, they will learn how fossils are formed and learn about the contribution of Mary Anning to the field of palaeontology. They will also understand how soil is formed and then investigate the permeability of different types.
In English, we will be studying the amazing book, ‘Stone Age Boy’ by Satoshi Kitamura.
In design and technology, we are going to be learning where and how a variety of ingredients grow. The children will start by learning how to plant seeds and care for their plants so they yield produce that can be used in their cooking. Then will then learn how to cook with the ingredients they are growing; following recipes and using different kitchen equipment.
We hope you enjoy looking at our work and finding out what we have been doing!
