Children will have the opportunity to investigate Stone Age artefacts, create artwork based on Stonehenge and learn about Iron Age hill forts. You can view the learning challenges for this topic here.

In science this term we will be learning about animals including humansWe will be learning all about nutrition and what makes a balanced diet, investigating how muscles work and the importance of the skeleton, and working scientifically to plan investigations. After half term, we will be learning about rocks. We will find out how rocks are formed and investigate the properties of different rocks.

Our literacy lessons will be focused on fairy tales from a different perspective and  play scripts and we will be writing our own stories within these genres.
