Year 3 stepped back in time today to take a journey from the Stone Age to the Iron Age. What fun they had, trying out some crafts and jobs –
from building walls in the Stone Age to creating beautiful jewellery from the Iron Age!
Year 3 have had an excellent week back, becoming immersed in their new topic – ‘Stone Age to Iron Age.’ After analysing real cave paintings, Year 3 decided to create their own! The children made paint from animal fat (vegetable oil!!) and soil or coal. They then used this to paint their own cave drawings to tell their friends a story. It is hard to tell a story without using words but the children did a brilliant job!
Next the children were given some, very well preserved, Stone Age poo which they dissected to find out what the Stone Age man might have eaten. In the poo they found: fish bones, a small piece of fur, egg shells, seeds, apple pips and thread worm! EWWW!
Mrs Somers was nervous but excited to be asked to speak at the annual ‘Secondary History Conference.’ Mrs Somers spoke to teachers about how we prepare children in primary school for their future in history
Wellow were so pleased to, once again, host the annual history day for School Direct students. The students learned how to incorporate the Hampshire History 6 step enquiry into their planning and had a go at many exciting history activities!
We wish the students well in their new careers as fantastic primary history teachers!
A fantastic display of the children’s work was on show at King John’s House in Romsey as the children gave informative talks about the history of the museum and an insight into Britain’s most measly monarchs!
We had many visitors in the afternoon – one lady had come from Australia and said how bowled over she was by the whole experience! It turns out, she is also a teacher and now hopes to offer a similar experience to her class!!
Well done Year 5!!!
The Year 3 classroom was invaded by Rotten Romans on Tuesday this week!! The children were able to handle artefacts, learn some really horrible history and learn how to become a truly Rotten Roman!
A super day was had by all and I am sure the children will astound you with their new found skills and knowledge!
