On the 12th September, Wild Dog visited our year 3 children to introduce our Stoneage topic. The children asked lots of questions and we found out lots of facts and information. After sharing replicas of artefacts used during that period of time and thinking about their uses we handled them carefully. We made our own drawings of prehistoric animals in a cave painting style using charcoal. We also practised grinding grain to make flower.
We have all been taught response actions if we ever find ourselves in a lock down or evacuation situation. We enjoyed playing games and learning 5 basic movements and responses.
3CL enjoyed a visit to the Open Zone at the Word. We worked hard to build and program Lego Wedo making a Milo robot. We also completed an hour of code where we programmed dancers to music. We had a wonderful time.
Well done to all our pupils who achieved a bronze or silver attendance award this morning. What a great turn out of parents and carers also!
