Evolution of Early Man

Synopsis:

Children investigate life in Britain from the Stone Age through to the Iron Age.  This in-depth study should explore different aspects of life in that time and could include a local study eg Skara Brae.  They write a biography detailing the works of Charles Darwin, Mary Anning or David Attenborough.  They write a narrative based on Ted Hughes 'The Iron Man', skillfully interweaving character, setting and plot.

In science, children study evolution and inheritance.

In History, children explore narratives both within and across periods, examining continuity and change.

In Art, children emulate cave art using drawing and painting skills.

In D&T children plot the evolution of various technologies eg phone and create their own prototypes
