Term 3

Curriculum Letter Term 3

This term our learning is centred around how the Ancient civilisations left their mark on Wiltshire. We will be exploring life from the Stone age through to the Iron Age and discovering some of the major changes which took place across several thousand years. We will be discovering the life and death of a key figure during the Bronze Age and finding evidence of who he was. 


Our English this term is based on the fabulous book, Goodnight Mister Tom, the tale of evacuee William Beech, who comes to stay with grumpy Thomas Oakley. As well as exploring the complex character development throughout the story, we will be looking into writing newspaper reports on events and setting descriptions of the contrasting settings in the book. 


In our science learning we will be exploring the changes in humans from birth to old age.
