We had an incredible experience at the Museum of Kent Life. We were tasked with learning the skills it takes to survive in the Stone Ages, taking part in many workshops including: Grinding grain, Meet a tribe member, Beliefs and burials, Cave painting, Trading in the stone age, Weapons and Hunters to farmers. We learnt a lot of useful skills and information about what it takes to thrive in the Stone Age 70,000 years ago! We also had chances to explore the farm and meet many different animals. What a day out it was!
Surviving a day in the Stone Ages!
As part of our topic "Rock of Ages" we learnt about legendary fossil hunter Mary Anning. We spent some time learning about the different types of fossils and how they are formed. We even had a go at making our own trace and mould fossils!
We had the pleasure of having a speed stacking master class given to us. We played some fun games and learnt the tips and tricks to be a great speed stacker!
Term 1 Creative Homework
We had lots of lovely homework to share from our creative home learning in Term 1!
We have been beginning to work on our computer skills this term, starting with coding! The website code.org is a brilliant and fun way to learn how to organise code and learn computing!
We have been exploring the book Belonging by Jeannie Baker, discovering what it means to belong to a group or club, learning how to describe our surroundings using sight, sounds and smells. We have also explored the idea of creating collages using natural and man-made mediums, just like Jeannie Baker does! We used: Leaves, twigs, oil pastels, crayons, wax pastels and colouring pencils to create these lovely pieces of art!
We have been spending time learning about France to kick start the year. This included learning about some French traditions, food and sports. We ended by looking at French landmarks, why they are so special and had a go at making our own!
