This term and for the first half of spring term our topic is 'Hunters, Gatherers and Settlers'. We will be taking the children far back in time to look at what the world was like before we inhabited the Earth. They will, hopefully, be able to appreciate how Pangea changed and evolved into the planet we now call our home. Different eras and the early civilisations will be studied chronologically. Starting with Stone Age Britain, we will learn about their daily lives and gain an appreciation of the challenges these early peoples faced and how they overcame their struggles through inventions and innovations. Other civilisations studied will include the Bronze Age, Iron Age, Anglo-Saxons and Vikings.

To understand how these peoples evolved, we have to understand their reasons for why they settled where they did. What were the factors that influenced their decisions and are those factors still important today? We will be using many geographical skills when looking at settlements and investigating how and why villages, towns and cities have evolved in more recent times.

Many art and DT skills will be used throughout the topic. For example, children will be designing and making their own Iron Age dwelling.

Leading up to October half-term, the children will be looking at the question, 'What do Christians mean when they refer to God as 3-in-1?' After half-term, we will be considering how the incarnation is represented in art around the world.

In French, the children will be start by learning sport and sport vocabulary.

We are really looking forward to teaching these fascinating topics and we know that the children will enjoy learning about them too.
