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 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 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?
Help your child prepare for their project It’s amazing to think that Stone Age people were alive 2.5 million years ago! As they used to paint on walls, why not create a painting on an old roll of wallpaper or a smooth stone from the garden? You could also visit your local library to research the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age history of your local area. Alternatively, visit a site from one of these time periods and imagine what it would have been like to live there.

This week we have started looking at the book 'The stone Age Boy'. From this we have begun writing our own adventure stories based on the book. This week, through our modelled writing process, we focused on how to write a good story opener. All the children have worked exceptionally hard and we are so proud of the work they have achieved. Take a look at their below
Writing Week 2
This week in our story writing, we have finally got out the gloomy cave. Throughout the week, we have looked at the noticing, adverbial phrases, questions, feelings and dialogue lenses and developed our ideas on our thinking page. We then spent Wednesday and Thursday converting our thinking side into brilliant sentences. Even Mr Davies came to see how fantastic our ideas were and he was really impressed with our vocabulary. The children should be really proud of what they have achieved - as we are definitely proud of the work they have produced ⭐️ Take a look at some of their writing below 🙂
