We have been keeping track of the growth of the baby giant panda at the Washington Zoo in the USA.

Term 1 Origins
Term 1 begins with our theme of Origins. Children will travel back in time to find out about the origins of man. What did people do before cars, before electricity, before I pads?
We will look at why people chose to settle where they did and how they survived. We will find out about clothing, food, hunting and shelter.
We hope to make our own paints to create wonderful Stone Age style cave paintings.
You can find our more about what we are learning by looking at our theme overview.
There is a knowledge organiser with key facts and vocabulary for science and history. Please use these to support your child at home.
Homework will be sent out on a Friday and we will give feedback on the following Wednesday.
