We will be studying the Stone Age and delving deep into their cave drawings and carvings this includes mixing and making our own handmade paints. Join us on our journey back through the ages and see where some of our modern day thinking’s and ideas have come from. There are some fascinating local Stone Age artefacts and findings that we will extremely lucky to view and handle. Are you brave enough to survive in the Stone Age?”
This half term, our topic is "Being Human". Our class text is "The Boy at the Back of the Class", from this book, we will be looking at what it means to be a good friend by showing compassion and understanding.
The world is a very strange place at the moment in the current situation we are in. We will be discussing how this may further be different for many children our own age; particularly focusing on the Children's Refugee Crisis which links to closely with our class text. We will be looking at what being human means to us by identifying and discussing our own personalities and traits in an art form to highlight how unique we all are.

In Year 5 this half term, we will be stepping into the magical wintery world of Narnia. During this half term, we will be looking at fantasylands.
