Welcome to Year 3!
During the Autumn term we will be exploring the concept of The Rise of Humans. The dinosaurs ruled the earth throughout the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods, but how did they come to be extinct... or are they?! We will using How the Dinosaur Got to the Museum to this section of our theme for this term. Following a swift look through the Ice Age, we will then lead an enquiry into the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages, following how prehistoric man moved from the caves of the Paleolithic Period to the more nomadic existence of the Mesolithic Period and finally how Stone Age man began to build house in the Neolithic Period, and how these house developed during the Bronze and Iron Ages. We will also be looking at how land use changed over this time, as well as the diet and daily life of our predecessors. We will be assisted in this by an expert visitor who will visit us in October and will be linking our topic with the class text Stig of the Dump.
