We have had great fun in Topic this week, learning about Stone Age cave paintings. We discovered how hand prints were made using animal blood and squirted onto the cave walls using a hollowed out bone, like a straw. We used paint and flicked it around our partner's hand to create a blow-paint style piece of art. See photos below - it was a rather messy lesson!
What a fantastic first few weeks we have had in Year 3!
This week we had a very exciting lesson outside in the orchard. We were learning about the importance of fire during the Stone Age. During the lesson, one of the Year 3 pupils, dressed as a prehistoric animal, was 'hunted' by the Stone Age Year 3s whilst Miss Biswell built up the fire. We then made 'campfire bread' and cooked it over the fire and had marshmallows as a treat. Although these foods aren't from the Stone Age, the children were able to appreciate the importance of fire and how difficult it would have been to get a good meal as a Stone Age person.
