Hornbeam Class

Welcome to Hornbeam Class!


Term 5 is going to be packed with exciting adventures into the past as we explore our new topic: Civilisations. The two civilisations we will be investigating are Stone Age Britain and Ancient Egypt. We will be travelling along different lines of enquiry, such as beliefs and religion, agriculture and technological approaches, but we will also explore everyday life during these times. We will be closely comparing the two civilisations, discussing how they differ and aiming to understand how one could be so much more advanced than the other. This will link closely to our new class text, Wolf Brother, where we will explore what a nomadic existence may have been like through the eyes of the main character, Torak. We will be sharing our journey as we go and hope you enjoy finding out about our learning!
