Autumn Term 2018

Topic - Stone Age to Iron Age

 

We have been finding out about the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age.

 

Stone Age hunter-gatherers had to catch or find everything they ate. They moved from place to place in search of food.  Early Stone Age people hunted with sharpened sticks. Later, they used bows and arrows and spears tipped with flint or bone. People gathered nuts and fruits and dug up roots. They went fishing using nets and harpoons.  Stone Age people cut up their food with sharpened stones and cooked it on a fire. They used animal skins to make clothes and shelters. After a good day’s hunting people could feast on meat. But the next day they had to start finding food again!

In the early Stone Age, people made simple hand-axes out of stones. They made hammers from bones or antlers and they sharpened sticks to use as hunting spears.

 

As part of our topic, we created our own hand print art to decorate our classrooms!

 

   

 

We have been reading Stone Age Boy in our Guided Reading sessions.

 

 

An Autumn Poem

 

Golden leaves swirl above my head

Orange, red and yellow leaves swirl in the sky

Lovely leaves dance in the sky

Dancing trees whistle in the wind

Everything looks beautiful in Autumn

Nests are being built for the baby birds

 

Let autumn come because it is a special time

Eat lots of special food

Autumn is the best

Value the different foods

Enjoy the Autumn

Squirrels collect nuts to eat for their dinner.
