  • What’s the big idea?

    Humans are special. Unlike other animals, we can adapt and learn new skills in order to survive, which is exactly what our ancestors did in the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages.

  • What will we be learning?


    We will be able to:

    • Compare and group together different kinds of rocks on the basis of their appearance and simple physical properties. 
    • Describe in simple terms how fossils are formed when things that have lived are trapped within rock. 
    • Recognise that soils are made from rocks and organic matter.

    We will know:

    • About significant people from the world's history
    • That our knowledge of the past is from a range of sources, including artefacts
    • Changes in Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age

    We will be able to:

    • Ask and answer questions about the past
    • Note connections, contrasts and trends over time and develop the appropriate use of historical terms
    • Construct informed responses that involve thoughtful selection and organisation of relevant historical information


    We will be able to:

    • Locate the world’s countries, and the counties and cities of the United Kingdom
    • Identify the position and significance of latitude and longitude
    • Describe and understand key aspects of physical and human geography
    • Use maps, atlases, globes and digital/computer mapping
    • Use the eight points of a compass, four figure grid references, symbols and keys

    We will understand:

    • The geographical similarities and differences of Ethipoia and Skara Brea


    We will be able to:

    • Choose materials and artwork which are appropriate for our task of
      cave painting


    We will be able to:

    • Identify activities and cultures which are different from but equal to our own
  • knowledge organiser

  • MATHS - Please help your child to know the 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 times tables

    We will also be working hard to learn more about:

    • Four operations - addition, subtraction, multiplication and division
    • Fractions
    • Measurement - money, length and perimeter
    • To be able to solve word problems using the four operations
    • We will be using the science fiction story ‘The Iron Man’ to inspire our writing.
    • We will continue to improve our SPaG knowledge, skills and understanding, in particular: homophones and adverbial phrases showing time, manner and place.
  • statutory SPELLING LISTS
