Half term information Autumn 1 2023

The children have fully immersed themselves in the learning this past term and have really engaged in the topic: Stone Age to Iron Age. We created clay beads to design our own Stone Age jewellery and wrote a variety of letters about our discoveries through the text, Stone Age Boy. The children have written their own version of this story ready to enter the BBC 500 words story competition. The new maths focus on mastery and using power maths challenged lots of us; especially as we had to think about partitioning numbers in a variety of different ways. In other areas, we completed a unit on life in prehistoric eras while improving our orienteering skills in PE.
