This term, we will be focusing on life in the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages. The topic provides opportunities for a host of activities across the curriculum, which we’ll be looking to take advantage of. For example, in science we’ll be focusing on inheritance and evolution. Our work in computing will also link, where the children will be aiming to create their own brochure, advertising a cave. The art work produced will also link heavily, as the children will be creating cave paintings and hand stencils.
The biggest link with our topic will be in literacy, where we’ll be reading ‘Wolf Brother’ by Michelle Paver, exploring the different characters, as well as using drama to see how the children act as some of those main characters. The drama activities are incorporated to really embed thoughts, feelings and emotions in order to try and impact the children’s effective writing.
In maths, we’ll be focusing on place value problems which will set us up nicely to revisit the four contracted written methods, solving a variety of calculation problems before getting stuck into fractions. This will all be supported with regular work on the children’s mental strategies and times tables.
