River of Knowledge

The children have begun the Autumn topic of The Rise of Humans by exploring the Mesozoic Era and creating a timeline of the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. They have spent time discovering which dinosaurs lived during these periods and have made a model of a Tyrannosaurus Rex head; out of a recycled milk bottle, masking tape and poster paint.

We have discussed the three most likely causes of the extinction of the dinosaurs, and the children have chosen the one which they think is most likely and written about the reasons that they think the dinosaurs became extinct.

During the Stone Age section of the topic, we have been considering what types of homes man lived in during the three different periods of the Stone Age. We have looked at Paleolithic caves, Mesolithic tents and Neolithic early houses.
