Week beginning 23rd January

We have had a wonderful Stone Age day today! We started off the day learning all about the Stone Age, bronze and and Iron Age, then we got to study a range of genuine artefacts! After this we put our teamwork skills to good use and made mini Stone henges, but the leader had to stay silent and direct us with gestures only! After our quiz, we then played the hunger games and learnt all about hunter gatherers catching mammoths with spears, catching prey silently using wind chimes and playing team games about whether food was from the Stone Age or now! We even managed to find the time to do some Stone Age role play in the forest. A fantastic day had by all.

We have had a wonderful time in art these past 2 weeks! We are learning about cave art as part of our Stone Age topic, and as such we have removed all tools and done as the Stone Age would've and used our hands! We went to the forest to find materials to create our own paints and find out what we can use to make dyes and painting tools. We used spices such as tumeric, paprika and cinnamon to create our own paints. We then used a range of materials to create our own 'cave wall' sensory experience! We will turn these into our own cave next week! We also invited Luke into class to speak to him about our parish community and find out what lay people are.
