Term 1: Stone Age

 

 

Year 3 & 4 start the year by diving back 800’000 years! We study the changes that took place in Stone Age Britain from the Palaeolithic, Mesolithic and Neolithic Eras. We study Stone Age Boy and Stig of the Dump as class texts and even have a visit from a local historian!

 

 

Term 2: Bronze Age to Iron Age

 

 

In term 2, Year 3 & 4 will study the changes that took place in Britain between the Bronze and Iron Ages. We will study local findings use these to decide which was more impressive: the Bronze Age or the Iron Age. Throughout this term, we study the Iron Giant in our English lessons and start to add increasingly sophisticated vocabulary to our writing.

Term 3 brings one of our favourite topics: Ancient Egypt. With sphinxes, pyramids and mummies galore, we study the impressive developments that took place in Ancient Egypt. We study Secrets of the Sun King and Flat Stanley and the Great Egyptian Grave Robbery as our class texts. We make our own sarcophagi, practise writing in hieroglyphics and much, much more!

Following the year’s History theme, term 4 brings us to Crime & Punishment. In years 3 & 4, we study the changes that took place in the field of crime and punishment in Britain throughout history. We also use this as an opportunity to get out into the local area to look at some local historical evidence!

 

Term 5: Coasts

 

 

With a particular focus on the geography of the Kent coast, we study Chatham Dockyard and the geography of Kent. We study the features of the Kent coastline and even get out to see some of it! Our texts for this term are The Ice Monster and Victory!

We finish the year with a fascinating topic about magic! Through Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, we learn how to sew our own house badges, design our own mythical creatures and many more amazing activities! We finish the year with an amazing trip to Warner Brothers’ Studio Tour!
