Our Autumn topic is the Stone Age. We will explore the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age periods. We will look at what made these periods in history special exploring the discoveries and inventions. We will look at what cave men were really like and discover what it would have been like to live in those times. We will examine the types of homes people used to live in, what they ate and how they farmed. We will also learn why historical artefacts are important and how we can use them to help us discover information about the past.
Our Spring topic is Ancient Greece. We will develop our geographical skills by locating Greece on a world map and discuss the countries and oceans surrouding it. We will look at and explore the lifestyles of Ancient Greek adults and children and compare them to modern day. We will also compare Ancient Greek life to modern day life and discuss the similarities and the differences. We will look at Ancient Greek artefacts and understand why they are so important to our historical knowledge and what we can learn from pottery, etc. We will learn about the Greek gods and goddesses and Greek mythology.
Our Summer topic is Ancient Egypt. We will develop our geographical skills by locating Egypt on a world map and discuss the countries and oceans surrounding it. We will look at and explore the lifestyles of Ancient Egyptian adults and children and compare them to the modern day.

How you can help :)
Please support your children's learning by listening to them read every evening. They also need to be practising their spellings every evening (Monday - Thursday), and practising their times tables often. Times tables are tested every Friday, spellings are tested every Thursday, and planners are checked daily to ensure children are reading.
