The first thing to do is compare the different ages that we have learnt about.

 

Now we want you imagine you can return to one of these ages in a time capsule. Which age you most like to live in.

Draw a picture of yourself wearing the clothes of the age. Give 3 different reasons why you would like to live then.

 

End of term challenge

Normally at the end of an Enquiry, we do a challenge. You have already made some extremely good dioramas of a Stone Age settlement. Your challenge now is to create a diorama of an Iron Age hill fort. 

You can make this out of anything you have at home but if you are struggling to find things, you can do a detailed picture of a hill fort with labels and information around the edge.
