Digging Up the Past


This term we will working as a team of archaeologists to discover what can be learned about the past by digging underground. 


We will be developing our historical understanding  as we use a range of sources to investigate inventions from the Stone Age to the Iron Age. In science we will be learning about different rocks and soils and what they can tell us about the prehistoric landscape. Using the story of Mary Anning for inspiration, we will be writing in role about our greatest pre-historic finds as well as making up our own Just So stories to explain how humans  first learned to make fire. Mary Anning will feature in our RE lessons this term too as we consider different people's views on miracles and in particular those that Jesus performed. 


In maths this term we will start by looking at formal methods for multiplication and division followed by opportunities to apply this to problems related to measure. This term we will also develop our knowledge of analogue and digital time, whilst applying our understanding of duration and larger time units to our topic work.
