This term, we are taking the children back in time to discover what life was like for our eldest and dearest ancestors! We will be researching and investigating the how early man lived… or more importantly, survived without all of the common comforts we have today.

Year 4 will turn back the clocks to the Stone-Age and use their knowledge of the time period to write a recount of the life of early man. Through our immersive curriculum, they will gain a first-hand understanding of what our ancestors had to do in order to live a prosperous life through discovery and community.

As the term develops, so will our learning. Collingtree will quickly pass through the times of the Bronze-Age and through to the Iron-Age as we continue to learn how early man developed scientifically, technologically and economically. 

Building on their knowledge and skills, children will further enhance their understanding by analysing the impact such events and discoveries had on the time that followed it and the importance this evaluation had on communities being more successful than others. 

Be ready for den-building, foraging, team-working, naturalistic art, using early tools and living the live through… The Age of Man!

We aspire to keep our children safe, at school and online...
