Our topic this half term is, 'Stone Age to Iron Age.'
Through this unit children will go on a journey through time exploring the changes that took place during the 350,000 years from the Stone Age, through the Bronze Age ending in Iron Age Britain. They will discover the impact this extensive historical period had upon life today, in particular, the beginnings of civilisation and settlements. The children will also research evidence from the Stone Age in our own local area.
The children will look at maps to see how the British Isles has changed and conduct a detailed study of Stonehenge and by the end of this unit they will understand the impact that this era has had upon life today.
