Summer Term 2018


IPC - Scavengers and Settlers



Humans are special. Unlike other animals, we can adapt and learn new skills in order to survive, which is exactly what our ancestors did in the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages. 


The museum came to school for a workshop called THE MYSTERY OF PREHISTORY. We: 

  • Considered the impact the changing environment had on tools, food and clothes from the prehistory period.
  • Explored the transitions from the Stone Age to the Bronze Age and then the Iron Age.
  • Compared materials and made decisions about the changes and continuity.


We will be starting this term with a 2 week block of swimming lessons at Brigg Leisure centre. We have had our water safety talk and we are raring and ready to get in the water!
