This term our learning will be focussed on The Stone Age.
Theme: The Stone Age
Our Theme this term is The Stone Age, we will immerse ourselves in The Stone Age during our trip to Ferry Meadows, where we will take part in a number of Stone Age activities and acquire lots of Stone Age knowledge to bring back to school. We will then learn about, research and explore the different aspects of life during the Stone Age, before moving onto the Iron Age in the following term.
Each child can give themselves a head start in their Stone Age research by doing some research here: https://www.dkfindout.com/uk/search/stone-age/
Stone Age vocabulary: Mesolithic, Neolithic, Palaeolithic, cave, spear, flint, carve, hunt, gather, forage, shelter, agriculture.
In English we will be reading and focusing on the book Stig of the Dump by Clive King. The learning tasks that we complete to continue to develop our writing skills will be guided by, and focused around this book. We will also be writing a recount of our exciting Stone Age trip to Ferry Meadows. Our reading skills will continue to develop as we read and explore the book in greater detail, and answer a range of questions about it.
May I please remind parents and carers that it is an expectation that children read outside of school a minimum of five times per week, which should be logged in their reading records for a Norwood adult to check.
Within our Maths learning this term we will be focusing on developing our problem solving and reasoning skills, as well as learning about lines, perimeter and the property of shapes. We will also be continuing to apply our arithmetic knowledge to our number and lightning learning, which will develop the skills that help us when solving problems. It would benefit each child to continue practising their times tables via the PIXL timestables app.
