TERM 2 - WE WILL ROCK YOU!
Stone Age to Iron Age
Our new topic for this half term - We Will ROCK You!
The story of prehistoric Britain began when the first humans arrived in Britain.
The earliest humans were hunter-gatherers. They survived by hunting animals and finding food to eat. Then, very gradually people learned new skills. First they learned to herd animals and grow crops. Later they discovered the secrets of making bronze and iron.
Prehistoric people couldn't read or write, but they were excellent builders. Their tombs, forts and monuments have survived for thousands of years.
This this section of prehistory is split into three time periods: Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. Each of these are split into three further periods, signifying when different developments happened.
Get your spears, flint and animal skins ready as we journey through the Stone Age to the Bronze Age then Iron Age.
Stonehenge is a prehistoric monument on Salisbury Plain in Wiltshire, England. The children will research to find out when, how and why it was built.
At home, you could try recreating it using biscuits!
Or you could try to make your own Neolithic-style bread. Just add water to flour, mix and fry.
