Autumn 1 Stone Age to Celts

Picture 1

This half term our topic is the Stone Age to Celts!

 

In History, we will be exploring the lives of people from the earliest Stone Age in the paleolithic 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 Wifi 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.
