Summer Term

Our topic for this term is The Fantastic Voyage. We will be learning about many aspects of life and survival during the Stone Age including their clothing, housing, craftsmanship, hunting, diet and communication. We will be creating our own Stone Age jewellery as well as our own 'cave art'.

Additionally, we will be reading the exceptional 'Wolf Brother' by Michelle Paver as our class text this term, experiencing the trials and tribulations (and tribes) of the Stone Age through the eyes of a young, orphaned boy who goes by the name of Torak.

One thing is for certain.. Summer term looks destined to be a whole lot of fun!
