This half term our topic is ‘Exploring in the Stone Age’. To introduce the topic we have looked at pictures, cartoons and story books depicting the Stone Age. We began completing a KWL grid (What I already know, What I want to know, What I have learnt) in Topic, demonstrating our current knowledge of the Stone Age and generating questions to further our understanding. At the end of the half term, we fill complete the grid by recording what we have learnt through our topic.
In PSHE this week, we watched a video about how to keep ourselves healthy. After the video, we sorted visuals into two columns; healthy and unhealthy. We know that to stay healthy we need to eat fruit and vegetables, drink water, exercise and sleep well.
In Music, we listened to two pieces of music; jazz and folk. As a class, we thought about how the music sounded and used adjectives to describe the music. The jazz music was fancy and relaxing, and the folk music was funky and fast. Then we each chose which piece of music was our favourite and gave a reason why. Next week, we will be listening to Hindu music as we will be learning a bit about Diwali.
