Stone Age Day

Friday 13th October | 14 comments

Wow! What a week in Year 3. It started on a creative note with seven children from 3B performing a short play about being disorganised in front of the whole of KS2, during their ethos assembly. Nathan, Gursimran, Ashwin, Hannah, Craig, Olivia and Abigail all look to have bright acting futures ahead.

The highlight of the week was on Thursday, when the children all took part in Stone Age Day. Some amazing costumes were seen and a massive thank you must go out for supporting the day with your time and effort to create them.

Activities that day were all based around stone age life. The children started off foraging for a range of foods and tools that stone age man would need. This was made harder by the fact that these items were hidden in the school grounds so the children had to use their history knowledge to work out where to look.

Stone age people were very creative, so everyone made and decorated a clay pot then constructed a tool out of paper.

Finally, the children celebrated the end of the day in stone age style by working in groups to develop their own dance, depicting part of a typical day as a hunter-gatherer.



Just a reminder that next Tuesday is photograph day, where children have individual photos taken.

Have a lovely weekend!
