Term 5 Learning Update
From Caves to Clans!

We will look at what cave men were really like and discover what it would have been like to live in those times. We will examine the types of homes people used to live in, what they ate and how they farmed.
In English we will be investigating narrative plot, characters and settings in Stig of the Dump. We will focus on Stig in our character descriptions and his cave for our setting.
