  Term 2- Prehistoric Adventures with Mighty Metals

Stunning Start
The children will become human metal detectors on a hunt around our school grounds. Together as a year group we will bring together everything to we find to create our very own Iron Giant on the playground.
Fabulous Finish
Using our new skills as engineers we will turn our classrooms into a magical, tin forest using various types of metal, all with different properties.


This term the children will become engineers, scientists, makers of men (Iron Men of course!)
In Term 2 we will explore the scientific world of forces and magnetism, metals and materials…expanding your minds as you test and trial, build and move.


Which force is at play when you slide down a slide, or swing on a swing?

Can you explain why magnets repel and attract?

Can you make a penny look shiny and new, or build a steel band from pots and pans?


Then we will meet Hogarth, Iron Mans companion, a man made purely from Iron. I wonder what the people of the Iron Age would think of an Iron Man, did they create him?

What else did they use iron for?
What will you find out on our next ‘Pre-historic Adventure’?

 

Term 1 - Prehistoric Adventures

Prepare to travel back in time with us on our ‘Pre-historic adventures’ where we will experience life through the ages. Our first topic will take us back in time to the Stone Age where we will learn about life as a caveman! The children will experience cooking by an open fire, cave painting mysterious messages and den building. We will use timelines in History lessons to see how life has changed over time, explore rocks in our science lessons to see which one would make the best house for a caveman based on its durability and its permeability. In English we will read our new power of reading text 'UG: Stone Age Boy' to help us write diary entries in the role of Ug and create sensational stone age poetry too. During our art lessons we will create our own cave paintings and in DT we will use clay to design a model replica of Stone Henge.
