Below is an overview of our learning throughout the Autumn Term.
Children have learnt all about Rocks and Soils. In this unit children will have learnt that below the surface of Earth is rock which they may not be able to see. They will understand that over time rocks have been broken down to form smaller rocks, pebbles, stones and eventually soils. They will recognise that there are different rocks and different soils which have different properties and appearances. Children will be able to identify, name and describe different rocks.
Children have been learning all about the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. We have compared the differences during these time periods, and how the quality of life improved over time.
We have learnt about an abstract artist called Mark Rothko, who was known for using colour to paint emotions. We used many techniques to create a piece of art based on one of our recent key texts, Firebird.
We have learnt a little about the Christian religion and why the bible is important.
