Snowy Days at School are the best fun !
Wishing you all a happy, healthy Christmas and a fantastic new year !
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!
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.
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.
