Wow what a start to the new school year! I am very proud of how the children have settled into KS2. They have been working hard on our amazing topic, The Stone Age. We have travelled back in time to understand what it would be like to live a hunter gatherer existence (not an Xbox in sight!). We have even been on a virtual trip to the prehistoric village of Skara Brea. Archeologists estimate it was built and occupied between 3000BCE and 2500BCE, during what’s called the ‘Neolithic era’ or ‘New Stone Age’. The village is even older than the pyramids and Stonehenge! In English we have based our writing on, The Tin Forest by Helen Ward, an amazing picture book that proved to be great inspiration for creating our own fantastic settings.
Even after all this excitement we are not finished this half term! With our class assembly and theme day coming up next week we still have a lot of work to do!
