Autumn Term


Topic Overview 

Throughout the Autumn Term we are going to be learning about the Stone Age.  

Within our History and Geography lessons, we will be observing, measuring, recording in the local area and consider what may have been present at a previous time in history. 

We will be looking what life was like in the Stone Age and think about how life has evolved and development to present times.


Later on in the term, we will learn about Earth including the different layers, key geographical aspects of mountains, volcanoes and earthquakes.  




We will be starting our English with stories with historical settings based on the book 'Stone Age Boy' by Satoshi Kitamura.

Later on in the term, looking at poetry and exploring different forms. 

As well as this we will link our geography and write information texts about mountains, volcanoes and earthquakes.

This term we are exploring ROCKS 


There are three basic types of rocks; igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic.


Igneous rocks are formed from melted rock deep inside the earth.


Sedimentary rocks are formed from layers of sand, silt, dead plants and animal skeletons.


Metamorphic rocks are formed from other rocks that are changed by heat and pressure underground.


Fossils are any preserved remains, impressions, or trace of any once-living thing from the past.


Soil is the uppermost layer of the Earth. It is a mixture of different things.

25% Air,  25% Water,  47% Mineral &
