We are a mixed Year 3 & 4 class and we do lots of exciting activities. We work really hard to try to be independent thinkers and learners and excellent team workers! We have many exciting learning adventures planned for the year ahead and can’t wait to show everyone how much we have learnt.
In Term 1, we have been busy learning about The Stone Age. We have made bone and shell necklaces, coil pots, experienced dyeing wool and cloth (making natural dyes), making Stone Age tools and designing Stone Age menus. Look at our creative homework on display too – from the latest Stone Age fashion to a range of houses used throughout the Stone Age periods.
The Woodpeckers visited Dover Museum as part of their topic studies from the Stone Age to the Bronze Age. We had an opportunity to see the 3500 year old ‘Dover boat’, and took part in a clay workshop to make our own models, complete with cargo, such as: cloth, Beaker pots and spelt.
In an artefact handling session, we were able to pass around a part of a woolly mammoth’s molar – it was quite heavy! We also handled some flint, and some bronze tools and axes.
