Stone Age homes

Last week, we looked at what some houses would have looked like in the different periods of the Stone Age.

What can you remember about the homes? 

Your previous learning will be important for our lesson this week as we are going to be looking at Skara Brae, which is on your knowledge organiser. What does it say about Skara Brae in the vocabulary section?

What do you think it was like to live in this Neolithic settlement?

3D shapes

Hello everyone,

This week in our maths sessions, we will be looking at 3D shapes.

Some of this week will be a recap of some vocabulary you already know like faces, edges and vertices. We will also be looking at naming those shapes we already know. Look at the shapes below. Can you tell me how many faces, edges and vertices some of these have?

However after this recap, we will actually be BUILDING our own 3D shapes using modelling materials.  This is going to be a great week of hands on maths.

As always, we are really trying to learn those 8x tables.

2 x 8 = 16

3 x 8 = 24

4 x 8 = 32

Mary Anning

In our science lesson this week, we have been looking at fossils and the fascinating way they are created. We also looked at paleontologists and a very famous person called Mary Anning.

Do some independent research about Mary Anning or fossils and share some fun facts on the blog.
