Term 1

Stone Age

This term in Year 5, we have been getting stuck into our Stone Age to the Iron Age topic and using it as a focus across our work.  We have created clan staffs, named our own wolf cub and worked on cave paintings.  Amongst non fiction texts such as instructions and adverts, we have been reading the book ‘Wolf Brother’, a fantastic Stone Age set story that has excellent vocabulary and inference for a Year 5 child.  They have been busy in Art designing and testing out their print making skills to eventually create a pencil case and for Black History Week, we created a poster all about the England squad’s first black player, Laurie Cunningham.  Next term, we’ll be moving on to the Bronze and Iron Ages and learning more about how the world changed over this huge and significant period of time.
