In this vehicle, the children will be told that the rest of the school want to learn about the Stone Age and we (Year 3) are going to teach them by creating and performing ‘Stone Age: The Musical’. The children will start by researching trade in the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. They will investigate settlements, stone age tools, iron age hill forts and the lives of children, adults and animals in those time periods. The children will take ownership of this vehicle by deciding which key history knowledge to include in the musical and work collaboratively to make the set and props. They will study and take inspiration from the story, Stone Age Boy. Time will be given for the children to write the script, create and learn the songs and rehearse the musical. Towards the end of the vehicle, children will perform ‘Stone Age: The Musical’ to the children and staff of Bradley Barton Primary School.
This will be broken down into weeks as shown below (the journey below is our intention but as the vehicle evolves it may be adapted).
During this vehicle, there will be a discrete science day whereby the children will learn about forces.
Please note: Alongside this learning, the children will be learning elements of our School Curriculum as well as the National Curriculum. Where possible, the English learning will be woven into this vehicle although there will be discrete teaching for English, Maths and other subjects where the learning does not fit.
Please see our vehicle journey below to learn more about each week!
