This term, our topic is ‘Prehistoric Britain’. We have been learning about the Stone Age and how people from this time period survived. We moved on from the Stone Age to the Bronze Age where we learnt about the ‘Beaker People’. We were then able to compare what life was like in these two time periods. As well as this, we researched the Stonehenge and discussed the possible reasons why it may have been built.
In English we have written a ‘Finding Tale’ based on the story of Sandy Cove. We came up with so many different ideas. Some of us were chased through a snowy forest by an angry yeti, whilst others found a treasure chest in their tree house and had to find the rightful owner! As well as this, we wrote a set of instructions about How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth. Unsurprisingly, they are very difficult animals to wash but they can usually be lured into the bath using a cupcake!
During science we have been learning about rocks and fossils. This linked nicely with our history topic of Prehistoric Britain. We discovered how fossils and soil are made and we researched Mary Anning and why she is an important figure within science and history.
This year, Year 3 and 4 are ‘Archie Project’ Ambassadors! A small group of us walk down to Reminiscence learning where we meet people who have Dementia. We get to have a chat with them and play a variety of games.

During science we have been developing our skills as scientists and ensuring that we are working scientifically. This involves us conducting fair and accurate tests. We created paper sycamore seeds and tried to make them fall to the ground as quickly as possible by using paperclips to weigh them down.
We also used a variety of materials to create an egg protector. This involved us wrapping eggs in tinfoil, kitchen roll, cotton wool or paper and dropping them from a height of 2m. It was very messy work but someone had to do it!
