In History, we will be exploring the lives of people from the earliest Stone Age in the Palaeolithic era through to the Celts. We will be learning about how lived, what they ate and weapons and tools that they used as well as how they changed over time.
In Science, we will be exploring healthy eating and nutritional content of different types of foods. Children will be researching the different food groups and investigating how to preserve food. We will also be comparing our diets to the diets of people in the Stone Age.
In DT, children will be investigating and building shelters suitable to protect a Stone Age child. They will need to consider how to strengthen their shelter, how to ensure that it is waterproof and that it can withstand poor weather.
In Computing, children will understand how a computer network works by hunting down the servers and Wi-Fi spots around the school. They will relate this to IP addresses and act in the role of a computer to understand how messages are communicated.
Music sessions will focus on Celtic Music, exploring where it originated from and the different instruments used. They will compose their own piece of music in the style of Celtic Music and play it on a recorder, using more than one note.
In Literacy we are looking at story openings. As a hook, we are reading The Stone Age Boy text which links nicely to our topic. We will be learning to use adjectives to describe nouns in our sentences and we will be up levelling our sentences with interesting sentence starters.
In maths we will be learning to read and write three digit numbers. We will be using concrete resources to help us to visualise the value of each digit. As part of the concept of place value, we will be learning to order and compare numbers by size. As part of our general learning in maths this year, we will be aiming to learn our three, four and nine multiplication tables.
