This term we will be Learning about the Stone Age, Iron Age and Bronze Age through our Tribal Tales Topic. 

Imagine the world 5000 years ago. What would you have seen? We will head back to prehistoric times (it’s a long time ago) to learn about gathering berries and hunting down dinner. We will unearth ancient objects and discover astonishing mystical monuments that reveal the secrets of an ancient time. Finally, we will learn how the people of Britain developed over thousands of years from the Stone Age to the Roman Invasion. What tribal tales can we tell?
