Spring Term 2019

This term we have been going on a journey through a million years of prehistoric Britain in our topic, ‘Who were the first Britons?’  Starting with the Stone Age and going right through to the end of the Iron Age, we have been discovering how humans first came to Britain, how they lived and what developments they made in each era.

 

The children have been looking at the very first piece of art work known to man – cave paintings! They have developed their drawing techniques using a range of materials, including pencil, charcoal, pastels and paint.  They have also design, created and evaluated their own Stone Age Jewellery.

 

In English, we have been reading ‘Stone Age Boy’ by Satoshi Kitamura and ‘How to wash a Woolly Mammoth’ by Michelle Robinson. This has inspired the children to write excellent narratives, letters and instructions.

 

Our Science this half term is all about Rocks. The children have been designing their own investigations to sort different rocks and soils. They have also been researching Mary Anning, who was an English fossil collector, deciding how to best present their work.

 

We are really looking forward to playing our Ukuleles in a concert later this term. We have been perfecting our skills by learning songs such as ‘The Flint Stones’ and ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’ on our Ukuleles.
