Term 2 - How have survival skills changed through time?

This term we are continuing with our enquiry question ‘how have survival skills changed over time’. Last term the focus of this was on the Stone Age and how Stone Age people lived during this era. This term we are concerned with the Bronze and Iron Ages. By the end of the term we will be able to compare the lives of people living during these time periods to now.
