Mr Copsey’s Class 2016-17
The Real Flintstones
(The Stone Age)
This term we will be learning about the Stone Age.
We will begin by looking at where the Stone Age is situated in history before looking at the lifestyle of the first humans who lived during this period.
Below are the national curriculum objectives we will be looking at:
Compare and group together different kinds of rocks on the basis of their simple, physical properties.
Relate the simple physical properties of some rocks to their formation (igneous or sedimentary).
Describe in simple terms how fossils are formed when things that have lived are trapped within sedimentary rock.
Art- Cave Paintings and Stone Age artefacts
We will also look at creating some stone age jewellery and creating our own versions of Stone Henge using clay. ‘Stig of the Dump’ will be our main text that our work in English is based on.
English- Stig of the Dump
In Art we will be looking at and producing our own cave paintings. We will look specifically at fossils linked to the stone age and also the science involved with volcanoes.
We will be doing descriptive writing, predictions and a sequel to the book.
