Welcome to Year 3 – Blackbird Class

Term 1

This term we are learning about the Stone Age. We will be learning about what life was like in the Stone Age and what it would take to stay alive! We will be exploring Stone Age tools and their uses. We will investigate Skara Brae, a Neolithic Stone Age settlement, located on the Orkney’s. We will be using the book ‘Stone Age Boy’ to explore Stone Age camps, eventually imagining what it would be like to live in the Stone Age. We will be looking at the cave art found at Altamira and using sticks collected from our forest to create our own Stone Age paintings!
