This term we have started looking at Animals including Humans.
We went through what we knew, what we thought we knew and what we wonder about the topic.
This half term Year 3 have been learning about the Stone Age. We have been learning about where the Stone Age fits in History, where they settled, the discovery of cave art and much more to help us answer our question ' How did life change for people from the Stone Age to the Iron Age?. We have been reading the book 'The Stone Age Boy' which has helped us immerse ourselves in what life may have been like. It has definitely been a fun topic so far.
In our History sessions, we focused on life in the Stone Age, considering various aspects of their lives such as homes, food, occupations and lots more! We furthered our understanding of chronology whilst creating a timeline of the era, and understood that this period of history is split into 3 sections; Palaeolithic, Mesolithic and Neolithic. Alongside these sessions, classes looked at different ‘stone aged’ themed texts in English and created their own paint to make cave art.
After our study around the Stone Age in History, we looked at the transition into the Iron Age. used these sessions to study life in the Iron Age by comparing the clothing, cooking, jobs and houses to those in the Stone Age, as well as those in life today. The children were given the chance to imagine how different their lives would be as an Iron Age child! Our Iron Age research connected to other subjects such as English.
