‘Sticks and Stones'



We will be learning all about the Stone Age. As part of this we will be focusing on


v Where people lived in the Stone Age

v What people ate

v What people wore

v The three different periods of the Stone Age


Ø Our two main texts will be ‘The Stone Age Boy’ and ‘How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth’.

Ø There will be lots of exciting opportunities for writing such as creating our own Stone Age stories, writing letters and postcards in the role if the Stone Age boy and completing instructions on how to wash a woolly mammoth.

Ø As part of our art and design learning we will be creating our very own ‘teeth’ and ‘bone’ Stone Age necklaces from clay and using chalk and pastels for cave paintings!

Ø Science will be all about rocks! The children will be completing a number of different investigations where they will need to be able to identify and compare different types of rocks.

Ø In indoor PE we will be learning about dance and focusing on netball for our outdoor PE.

Ø The children are super excited to be using our new laptops where we will be researching everything we can about the Stone Age at the same time as developing our computing skills.

Ø RE learning will be focused on Diwali and the story of ‘Rama and Sita’
