We have been learning about Stone Age life and created our own settlement including; shelters, fire areas for cooking, fishing areas, boat making workers, cooking slabs and lots more. We made our own tools such as axes. It was good to be on a hill to keep watch for enemies!
Year 1 have been busy making planets out of clay. We first looked at the shape and then we focused on the colours of each planet. The children then picked a planet and used different techniques to make their own.
This week we went to the forest to explore how Cave paintings were created. We made our own paint brushes with sticks, feathers, moss and leaves. We also made different coloured paints from nature: charcoal, chalk, crushed leaves and mud. We used modern methods to recreate; Cueva de las Manos – The Cave of Hands (Argentina) . It is fascinating to think about how long ago some of these images were created and consider what they tell us about the Stone Age times.
This morning the children in our pod had PE fun together. We shared games and parachute fun.
We made our mark in class ! Everyone created a ‘stained glass dot’ , a’CD sparkly dot’ and an amazing ‘3D’ dot with our 3D pens.
Today in Year 6 we have learnt all about blood. We started with plasma, which is yellow in colour. When we added the red blood cells it turned the blood red. These carry oxygen, nutrients and water around the body. Next we added white blood cells, whose job it is to take the waste away. Finally, we put platelets in the mixture. These clot our blood and heal wounds.
