Year 3/4

Year 3/4- Stone Age


This week the children enjoyed a range of activities all about The Stone Age. We began the week by creating our very own stone age tools, who knew it was such a challenge to tie a piece of flint to a stick!? The children showed their creativity making their own paint brushes and paint using natural materials to create their own cave paintings. There was great excitement when they went to investigate suspicious brown lumps they had found on the field. The children were able to dissect them to investigate the difference between modern day and stone age diets. During the week some of the children also created their own version of stone age pottery and added patters to the outside. The children have also planted their own daffodil bulb to celebrate the school turning 50, we look forward to seeing them bloom in spring!



Year 3/4-Cooperation/Music

This week we focussed on communication. We started by laying some games where we had to listen carefully to each other, the favourite being the ‘night line’ the children worked as a team with blindfolds on working their way along a string trail. They thought about what they were experiencing and tried to pass back information to those who were following. Working in teams we then erected our own shelters big enough for our whole team, some of them were fitted out with front doors, furniture and even carpets! We also explored how to create music and made notations of our rhythms using natural materials.
