Stone Age Art

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.

Science week Market Place

Yesterday to celebrate our Science week we invited parents in for our ‘Science Market Place’ so that we could share all of the work we have completed throughout the week. It was a great opportunity for the children to showcase their work and set up stalls with investigations for everybody to enjoy. There was even a competition between Year 5 and Year 6 on the go as they had designed and made a brand new chocolate bar for Cadbury’s World. Parents had the opportunity to vote on the appearance, texture and taste. It was a tough choice as they were both delicious but Honeycomb Heaven won meaning Year 5 took the overall prize!! Well done to both classes for their entries.

The children have had a brilliant week and learnt lots along the way. Thank you to everybody for making Science Week a huge success.

There has been a poster and habitat competition on the go and we have had lots of fantastic entries, the winners will be revealed next week.
