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!
