Beech Class Autumn Term
Through the Ages.
In the Through the Ages project, your child will learn about three different periods of British prehistory: The Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. They will discover terminology relating to time and sequence dates to make a timeline. They explore the changes to people, homes and lifestyle throughout the different periods and investigate examples of prehistoric settlements, monuments, burials and artefacts in detail. They will also study how technology improved over time, including how the discovery of different metals changed the way that people lived.
Suggested text Stig of the Dump – Clive King
This term we will begin a topic called ‘Portraits’. We will look at shapes and colours, prepositions of place and describe some Matisse paintings. We will learn parts of the face and body and use adjectives to describe them and create our own pictures. We will read a storybook called ‘Va t’en grand monster vert’.
