Welcome to Swift!
We are a mixed class from years 3&4 and you will find us in the the hall corridor.
Our teacher is Mrs Wellon and our teaching assistants are Mrs Scott and Mrs Khatri.
In term 5 and 6 our topic is the Stone Age.
In term 5, we will discovering what life was like for early people during the Stone Age. This will include learning about their housing and creating our own Stone Age settlements and finding out about their eating habits. In Art, the children will demonstarte their understanding of Stone Age life to create a Stone Age style cave painting.
Throughout the term, the children will develop an understanding of Rocks and Fossils. In Science, we will be identifying and grouping different types of rocks and considering their properties and uses. We will also learn how fossils are formed and make our own replicas in Art. In English the children will develop an understanding of the features of biographical texts and will be reading, ‘Stone Girl, Bone Girl’, a story about the life of Mary Anning, who was an English fossil collector, whose findings brought about significant changes to scientfic thinking about the prehistoric period. They will use this knowledge to create a biography about the life of Mary Anning.
