Key Information


Topic – Stone Age

Throughout terms 5 and 6 we will be learning about ‘the Stone Age to the Iron Age’.  We kicked off our topic last week with an exciting visit from Hands on History! The children got to observe Miss Guy being dressed up in Stone Age clothing and then they made a human timeline through history, using artefacts from key periods to bring it to life. We finished the session by considering how people may have communicated during the Stone Age period by devising our own way of signing messages to each other.


In our History lessons, through asking the question, ‘Why did people start to farm?’ Foxes will be finding out about the changes that occurred through the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. We will be focussing on settlements, ways of life, how people survived as well as learning how Historians find out about life in this period of time.


In Geography, we will be learning focusing on Wivelsfield School,conducting fieldwork, making maps of the school with keys, taking surveys and using grid references.


In art, we have already created some batik art using wax and dye. Later in the term, we will be looking at dying using natural materials. In Science we are exploring plants, their lifecycle and seed dispersal. The children started to look at this during their forest school sessions and will continue in class.
