This half term, we will be exploring the question, 'Could we survive in the stone age?', focusing on Stone Age life, developments and historical understanding. To help us do this, we will be answering a mini-question each week:
KQ 1: What was the Stone Age?
KQ 2: How can artefacts help us learn about the past?
KQ 3: How did the Stone Age people thrive?
KQ 4: How can historical sources to help us learn about black history during the Stone Age?
KQ 5: How did the Stone Age change Britain?
KQ 6: Where did the Stone Age people settle in the UK?
As part of our learning, in History we will be exploring the chronology of the Stone Age and how this impacted the Iron Age and Bronze Age. We will be developing our historical analysis skills by investigating the reliability of historical sources, as well as learning how archaeology can help us learn about the past.
In Science, we will be focusing on our 'Rocks and Soils' topic, where we will look at how rocks, soil and fossils are formed.
Here is the topic plan and sticky knowledge organisers that we will be using. The sticky knowledge organisers contain all of the key learning information that the children will gain over the course of this topic.
