This half term in years 3 and 4 we will be investigating early man throughout the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. During this topic we will answer the following questions… Why were these time periods given these names? What happened in the Stone Age? How do we know about this time? What artefacts have been found and where? How did prehistoric humans survive and live? How was their lifestyle different to ours? We will be reading Ugg, Stone Age Boy and Stig of the Dump to inspire a variety of writing such as, description, diary entries.
As part of their home learning, children are required to read at least 3 times a week. Children are to record when they read in their blue reading records. These reading records will be checked by the teacher every Monday. Reading is essential to progress so please try and hear your child read as often as possible.
Home learning will be sent home the first week of each half term and will include spellings and a mental maths challenge.
P.E. The children will be doing PE on Thursdays and Fridays.
Please ensure water bottles and belongings are clearly labelled.
