This term in English, we will be reading The Stone Age Boy by Satoshi Kitamura.
We will develop our writing by exploring setting and character descriptions. We are going to use Talk for Writing to bring the book to life!
Our Topic for this term is a History focus... Stone Age to Iron Age.
We will revisit the Stone Age, with some new learning! We are going to find out about some other periods in history too – the Bronze and Iron Age and highlight some of the major changes during this period.
We will understand how the period from the Stone Age to the Iron Age fits into British History and put events in chronological order.
In Religion, our topic this term is Homes and Family.
We follow the Come and See scheme of work. We also take part in Collective Worships every Wednesday morning, where we take time to reflect and pray together.
Our topic in Science this term will be Forces and Magnets.
We will explore what forces are and how they can move, stop or change the shape of an object. We will investigate friction and magnets as different types of contact and non-contact forces. We will learn also which materials are magnetic and how the north and south poles attract or repel.
