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. We will also be designing and creating our own Stone Age settlements in our Design and Technology lessons.
