Term 2 - Time Travel

Prehistoric Britain: Stone Age to Iron Age

Term 2 Spellings

 

Topic:

As our focus for this term is time travel, we will  explore the prehistoric time periods of the Stone Age through to the Iron Age. We will develop a chronological understanding of the time period, and how Britain has changed from the Stone Age through to the Iron Age. We will study several books including Stone Age Boy and how to wash a Woolly Mammoth. From these we will create several pieces of writing including persuasive writing, character and setting descriptions and advertisement about famous archaeological sites.
