AUTUMN 1st HALF – 2021

We are going to be Historians this half term and discover all about Stepping into the Stone Age.

ENGLISH –

We are going to start the year with poetry and build up our vocabulary by looking at a poem called ‘The Magic Box’.

For our topic based narrative we will explore a text called ‘The Stone Age Boy’.  We will look at the features of the text and learn new ways to make our writing exciting, and finally we will be authors and write our own alternative middle and ending to the story. We will also explore different fables.

MATHS –

We will develop our number skills, in place value and addition and subtraction, following the White Rose Maths. We will continue to learn our times tables and develop our fluency and reasoning skills.

HISTORY –

We will learn how to be Historians and discover Stone Age to the Iron Age.  We will learn about the changes in Britain during the Stone Age to the Iron Age, look at chronology, entertainment, food and achievements during this time.

SCIENCE –

Our Science topic is Rocks and Soils, where we will practically handle rocks and make compost. We will sort and group a variety of rocks. We will learn the different types of rocks and discover how they are formed.

Design and Technology –

We will look at and design our own battery operated light. This will involve making our own circuit with a switch.
