Autumn 1 2023
Our topic this half-term is "The Stone Age".
We will explore how the world has changed over time. Why it is called the "Stone Age". Additionally, to understand the journey from hunter-gatherers to community living. Our English will link into this topic, our class book will be "Stone Age Boy", linking this to diary writing. Towards the end of Autumn 1, children will write a non-chronological report, showcasing what they have learnt about the Stone Age. Moreover, in Science, we will be examining and researching types of rocks. In Art, we will also directly connect with our topic through the exploration of cave paintings.
Aside from the topic-based work, children will also be learning about commitments within faith families in RE, learning multimedia skills in computing, day to day in Spanish, singing + playing the Glockenspiels in music and PE this half-term is floor gymnastics + hockey.
Lastly, we will focus on Online Safety in our Wellbeing sessions. We will deepen our understanding of cyberbullying and the children will explore the effects and consequences of online bullying and what to do and whom to tell if they see it. We will also consider the reliability of information and images that can be found on the Internet. We will explore different methods to help us to become safer online by being cautious about some information sources.
