Our first History topic this year is the Stone Age, and we will be exploring all sorts of things: from Stone Age settlements, all the way to Stone Age food and cave art!
The Stone Age is part of our prehistory – that is the history which exists from before writing was around. We’ll be learning about where the Stone Age fits into the chronology of British History, looking at three main eras- Paleolithic, Mesolithic and Neolithic.
To supplement our learning about the Stone Age, we will also be studying the book Stone Age Boy by Satoshi Kitamura in our English lessons and we will be learning about rocks and soils in Science.
