Grasshopper Class

Welcome to Grasshopper Class!

Our school value this term is Nurturing

This term, our topic is all about The Stone Age and we are going to work towards answering the question

'Why did the lives of the ancient Britons change during the Stone Age'

 

Stonehenge - Wikipedia

 

We also have an over-arching enquiry question which will link to all other areas of the curriculum. 

'How does knowledge make us stronger?'

The children will be able to develop their learning by branching out from the 'topic' and setting their learning on a different path. They may find that they might come away from learning about The Stone Age and onto something completely different that really interests them. It is going to be interesting to see where their learning takes them.
