Have a look at some of our final pieces of work, celebrating the learning that has taken place about the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age.

Autumn Term - Time Travellers


Are we nearly there yet?


Get ready to travel back in time and explore the Stone Age! We will be diving into all things Stone Age, finding out about how they lived, what they ate, where they lived and what they used to hunt for food. In science we will be exploring different light sources and finding out more about our main light source, the sun. In PSHE we will be thinking about manners and when we use them... the teachers will be looking out for some excellent role modelling of this in class!


To celebrate Black History Month we have been looking at two famous inventors called Lewis Latimer and Garratt Morgan. The children enjoyed learning facts about these inventors and the struggles they faced to be recognised for their accomplishments.

We then went on to make posters to showcase words we felt described these people and their lives.

Our learning through 'The First Drawing'

We have been loved reading this book! Its about a Stone Age boy who day dreams of seeing creatures in clouds, flickering in the fire and in shadows on the cave wall. His family never believe him, until he creates the first ever drawing and draws them a huge wooly mammoth on the cave wall - The worlds FIRST drawing!

We took on the role of the cave boy and wrote letters to the future asking what drawing was like now. Take a look at our finished products!

We had great fun imitating cave painting in our art lessons and even creating hand prints just like they would have in the times of the Stone Age!

Each week the children will receive spellings and times tables appropriate to their level. These will be stuck into their homework books and sent home every Friday.

If you ever misplace or lose spellings, please let your class teacher know. 

Test days:

Wednesday - Times table test

Thursday - Spelling test




Please don't forget your 20mins (or more!) of RM Easimaths!
