Our Learning Journey

Term 2 – Could I be a food connoisseur?
Term 3 – Could I be a paramedic?
Term 4 – Could I be an estate agent
Term 5 – Could I be an evacuee?

Term 1 – Activities 

During our Learning Journey this term we will be taking part in lots of hands on activities to aid our learning. We will become archaeologists, study and create our own cave paintings and discover what Stone Age people ate by dissecting their poo!! We will also be finding out how rocks are formed and undertaking a range of scientific test to discover how they were useful to Stone Age people. In Geography we will be using 4 figure grid reference to locate Stone Age finds and will be comparing landscape features to identify suitable locations for Stone Age settlements.  At the end of term we will be combining all of our learning in a Stone Age outdoor survival day – will the children have the skills they need to survive?

In English we will be using the texts ‘Stone Age Boy’ to aid our story writing and ‘How to wash a Woolly Mammoth’ as inspiration for instructional writing.

In Maths we will be focussing on Place Value and 3 digit numbers as well as continuing to build our number fluency and times table knowledge.

How can you support your child?

Listen to your child read 4 times per week and record this in your child’s contact book. Regular reading builds vocabulary knowledge and aids spelling so will also have an impact on you’re the childrens writing. Ask your child questions when listening to them read about what they have read and what they think will happen next.

Practise times tables at every opportunity especially 3,4,and 8’s e.g on car journeys or waiting for a club to begin.

Encourage your child to research the Stone Age at home either online, using books or by visiting a local museums (Dartford, Maidstone and Rochester museums all have Stone Age artefacts and displays).
