This half term we will be learning about Lights and Shadows. We will be looking for patterns in what happens to shadows when the light source moves or the distance between the light source and object changes. We will also look at how shadows are formed when the light from a light source is blocked by an opaque object.

We will continue learning about Stone Age to Iron Age during this term. Children will understand that significant changes occurred within this period such as developing settlements and the making of tools for farming. We will also be visiting Herd farm for a Stone Age workshop children will see a fire lit using ancient technology and take part in a tool and artefact talk with
their archaeologist, Ian. We may take part in Forest School type activities including shelter building and fire-lighting.
