Ampleforth Abbey (Year 3)

Welcome to Year 3!

Stones and Bones!

This term we shall be exploring the Stone Age, discovering what life was like long ago. During our learning we shall explore rocks and their properties. We shall also investigate fossils and how they can be used to find out about the past. Through painting and drawing, we will explore techniques used and create our own cave paintings.


Here are some of the key questions we will be considering during our topic:

Why is it called the Stone Age? Which countries were populated? What does prehistoric mean? When was the Stone Age? What types of houses did they live in? What clothes did they wear? What food did they eat? How did they communicate?
