A very scientific afternoon testing the properties of rocks

Playing a money game during Maths Week

The children will learn about daily life in the Stone Age through to the Bronze Age, exploring different artefacts and sources to help inform their historical enquiry. In Science, they will investigate the different types of rock formation as well as fossils. In English, they will use the text “Stone Age Boy” to inform their writing. They will create a variety of writing types including setting descriptions. They will understand the term Stone Age life and how it is defined by the use of stone for making tools and weapons and the transition from the hunter-gatherer lifestyle to farming.
