Year 4 have had an extremely busy half term learning all about the Stone Age and Rocks. They have written their own information booklet all about Stone Age life in English and have taken part in many interesting activities in topic and Science.
The half term began with a visit from a Stone Age lady. She introduced the class to different aspects of Stone Age life including clothing, hunting and gathering and the dangers they would have faced from creatures such as woolly mammoths!
The children then went on to create their own cave paintings. They even foraged the materials needed to create them.
Year 4 have also looked at the type of housing Stone Age people lived in. They then picked a style of house to recreate from either the Palaeolithic, Mesolithic or Neolithic times. The children planned and designed their models using all natural materials. It was extremely challenging but the results were outstanding!
Further work was completed in science, where the children created a replica fossil when learning about the fossilisation process and they even visited a local church to learn about ‘why Jesus is the light of the world’ in RE. They have truly worked their socks off!
