Next term our first topic is Stones and Bones. As historians we go back in time to learn all about the Stone Age, exploring the 3 main periods of the stone age. As artists we discover how prehistoric people created cave painting and how they have lasted for thousands of years. As scientists we look at rocks and fossils, learning about the 3 different types of rocks as well as how fossils are formed.
Next term as writers we will be using Stone Age Boy. We will read and explore the text before creating pieces of writing using the story as our stimulus.
