Autumn 2 term (October- December)

Our topic for this term is the Stone Age. In particular, we will be focusing on what people in the Stone Age ate, where they lived, how they found their food and why they produced cave paintings.  We had an incredible hook day where we produced cave paintings (turning the tables on their side), investigated Stone Age poo (to see what they ate) and built Stone Henge, while finding out more about the structure of it and how it was built.

In science, we are carrying on looking at the circulatory system, particularly the heart and what is in blood. We will then be moving onto our changing world and looking at the environment around us and how it differs in summer.

Our class book this term is Wolf Brother by Michelle Paver.

We also recommend Stone Age boy and UG as we have been using these in guided reading.
