On Tuesday 5th October the children were surprised with a Stone Age visitor who taught them more about life in Stone Age times. Children had the opportunity to handle artefacts and use them to take part in drama activities to deepen their understanding.
When the children arrived at school the teachers greeted them in the corridors dressed and speaking as early humans. Most children also arrived in fancy dress and were excited about the day ahead. The children were divided into families and given a different character for the day. They then spend the day taking part in activities to replicate the types of tasks that early humans would need to complete on a daily basis. The women gathering fruit and vegetables, preparing an cooking them into fruit salad and chicken stew.
They also made Stone age games using sticks stones and leaves. The boys began their day by jumping into a time machine which took them to the “Pre-Historic” Heaton woods where they collected fire wood and created games which could have been from Pre-Historic times. The remaining boys (who were role playing being Granddads and dads) carved tools using soap and slate, used foam javelins to hunt Pre-Historic animals and used the sticks collected to make “fires” and Stone age rafts.
In year 3 we love to be creative! As a part of our Stone Age topic we wanted to make our own miniature versions of a Stone Age house. In the morning, our teachers set us a challenge to make a house using only marshmallows and spaghetti, some of our parents came in to help us! We found out that the houses that used triangle shapes were the strongest! We then designed and made our own houses using sticks, clay and leaves!
We received a lovely email from a parent commenting on his experience within the classroom.
Year 3 organised a special afternoon. Parents were invited into school to work alongside their children to make Christmas cards.
