The children had a fantastic day at Hill end today, getting completely immersed in the Stone Age! We started by working in teams, to build shelter’s out of sticks and leaves. The children really enjoyed working together, to see who could create a water tight shelter….I think they all got a little damp when put to the test!
After a short break, we moved on to cooking fresh dough on a small fire, foraging for berries, nuts and other edibles. The children even got a chance to make their own Stone Age spears and show off their best warrior poses! We also enjoyed getting the chance to sit in a Stone Age house and learning more about life at the time. All the children had a great time learning more about our Topic and having the opportunity to try new things.
The children have had a good first couple of weeks in Oak Class! They have settled in well and have been particularly enjoying learning about the Stone Age. They have created some lovely Stone Age cave drawings, which have been displayed outside the classroom. They used sand and natural items from outside to create their finished paintings.
