In our theme work this half term the children will be learning the following:-
Science - Rocks and Soils, which will involve the children developing an understanding of the types of rock and soils on our planet and exploring how these are formed.
History - Stone Age to Iron Age, which will involve the children learning about the life within this time period and comparing with their own experiences today.
The children will be provided with a home reading book, weekly spellings and a homework grid from which they can choose their activity to share with the class each week.
If you are unsure or have any questions please do not hesitate to ask. I am on the playground each mroning before school.

In Science we have been exploring rocks and composing questions that we would like answered about these. We used the magnifying glasses to take a closer look at a range of different rocks.
We have been learning Place Value and played some games using the tens and ones. The children are learning to exchange the ones to make ten.
English and History
Our History focus this half term is to explore the Stone Age to the Iron Age. We began this learning with a visit from a Stone Age woman(Maria Whatton - Storyteller) whom the children discovered in the school hall. They were able to ask her some very though provoking questions to aid their understanding of what life in the Stone Age would have been like. The children were particularly intrigued that the Stone Age woman did not understand much of the technology and every day language they used.
