Welcome back to Class 4...
Welcome back and I hope everyone had a fantastic summer and is ready for the school year ahead.
The year 5’s and 6’s have settled back into school life really well. We are looking forward to getting stuck into our topic for this term … Language and Communication through time. As Historians,we will be exploring the different languages and forms of communication used throughout time. We will explore how storytellers have passed on information for centuries, through spoken word or other forms. We will discover and investigate: hidden messages in cave art, how poets passed on stories through performing poetry, how the Celts began to write things down. We will explore early writing implements and ancient alphabets and much more! We will then take a massive leap to the last 100 years or so and investigate much later forms of communication such as telecom, Morse Code and of course, the internet!
For every time period we travel through, we transform in to Historians. Recently we have been using picture sources and artefacts to help us find out more about the past and how they communicated. Here is us working in small groups to discuss what we think each artefact might be.
