Autumn Term

Our topic for the autumn term is 'Living in the Wild'. As well as spending plenty of time outdoors and enjoying forest school, we plan to bring a little bit of the wilderness into our classroom. Our history focus will be all about the changes in Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age. We will be asking ourselves 'how did people move from living wild to early civilisation? In Geography, we will be looking at land use and types of settlements. We will look at early settlements (Stone Age to Iron Age) and why people chose to settle where they did. We will compare these to modern villages, towns and cities, looking at both human and physical features. The artists in us will also be exploring the wonders of the wilderness and we will produce cave paintings as part of our Stone Age study. We will also be creating outdoor art, inspired by Andy Goldsworthy and our English text ‘Wild’, using those lovely Autumn leaves! As well as this, we have some exciting plans for Design Technology! We will be exploring the power of air and using pneumatics to create moving megafauna (those huge animals from the Stone Age!)
