Autumn 1 - Tribal Tales
Let’s travel back to prehistoric times!
This half term we’re going to find a prehistoric site in our local area by studying maps and researching online. Through
our research, we’ll learn about the Stone Age, the Bronze Age and the Iron Age. What were people’s daily lives like and
what epic battles did they fight? Using techniques such as cutting, scraping and mark making, we’ll make Stone Age tools.
We’ll look closely at cave paintings and create our own. As we learn about the Bronze Age, we’ll build monuments and
investigate their shadows. In science, we’ll plant grains and learn about plant life cycles. Copying the Beaker folk style,
we’ll make clay containers. Then, we’ll travel to the Iron Age to learn about hill forts and the properties of iron. We’ll also
make Iron Age jewellery. During an exploratory dig, we’ll find all sorts of objects and creatures. What will we uncover?
Autumn 2 - Predator
It’s time to take a walk on the wild side!
This half term, we’ll invite some amazing animals into our classroom to discover how they move, what they feel like and
what they eat. We’ll also program a toy to move across a grid – will it be caught by a predator? We’ll learn about the
different parts of a plant and how some plants are predators! From our investigations about the human skeleton, we’ll
find out how muscle make the bones move. We’ll investigate food chains and learn about how animals find their food.
Using the internet, we’ll research the majestic peregrine falcon and discover where crocodiles live. After our research, we’ll
create an exciting aquatic animation.
