This week we got to have a virtual learning session with Cresswell Crags. As we couldn't go to Cresswell Crags (they were fully booked for school trips this half term) we decided to bring Cresswell Crags to us!
It was great to find out more about the Stone Age and how Cresswell Crags changed throughout the different Stone Age periods. We also got to see some incredible artefacts!
Also this week we finally got to go outside into our Forest Schools area and light some fires (see below for photos), just like the Stone Age people did. Well...not JUST like them, as luckily we had some more modern equipment to help us. However, it did make us realise just how important fire would have been to them. As well as this, we did some more timeline work and some work on comparing everyday life in the three different Stone Age periods. So much sticky knowledge!
As well as all this project work...
Plus, we got 84% Fab 5 Readers. Great week Foxes!
This week was all about our new project 'Through the Ages', which will see us focusing on the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. The Stone Age was our main focus this week. Did you know that the Stone Age was split into three different parts? The Palaeolithic era, Mesolithic era and Neolithic era. The difference between them is really important and that's what we started to find out more about this week.
Activities this week included...
We have LOVED the start of our new project and we can't wait to find out lots more about Prehistoric Britain!
