This year we will be covering:

Autumn 1

Tribal Tales

Children will learn about changes in Britain from Stone Age (Palaeolithic, Mesolithic and Neolithic periods), Bronze Age to the Iron Age, focussing on achievements, housing, society, food, entertainment and beliefs for each age.


Autumn 2

Mighty Metals

Children will learn about forces in the context of pushing and pulling, and will identify different actions as pushes or pulls. The children will work scientifically and collaboratively to investigate friction, by exploring the movement of a toy car over different surfaces. They will work in a hands-on way to identify magnetic materials. They will investigate the strength of different types of magnets and will have chance to explore the way magnetic poles can attract and repel.

They will also learn about skeletons, vertebrates and invertebrates. We will also think about Fairtrade food and farming.
