Curriculum Overview

Wider Curriculum

This term our focus is technology, and we will be exploring the question is ‘How have structures influenced our lives?’

Children will design and create a print inspired by prehistoric art. Children will be researching and orally presenting their findings about life in prehistoric Britian. We will also be creating wattle and daub structures, inspired by prehistoric settlements.

During this project, we will answer the questions:

  • All rocks are the same: support or challenge?
  • What are the properties of soil?
  • What are fossils and how are they formed?
  • Where do the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages fit into history?
  • What was life like in prehistoric Britain?
  • What were structures like in prehistoric Britain?
  • Why was art important in prehistoric Britain?
  • There’s only one way of printmaking: support or challenge?
  • How can my art communicate about life in prehistoric Britain?
